For aspiring artists, you’ve got to give them the fundamentals of drawing, but also cater to their interests. Klutz has an entire line of art books dedicated to Star Wars. With the Force universe making a big comeback the last few years, it makes sense that the younger generation is Star Wars crazy again!
The Klutz Star Wars Rebels Book Kit is a drawing book dedicated to the Star Wars Rebels series. You have 92 pages featuring the characters in the gap between the movies Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV A New Hope like Ezra Bridger, Kanan Jarrus, and more! This drawing kit includes: a mechanical pencil, black marker, three colored pencils, and an eraser. You can start by tracing your favorite characters with the translucent overlays and then move to sketching them in the spaces provided on each page. There are tons of tips and techniques for drawing your best Star Wars Rebels characters. It’s perfect for artists ages eight and up!
Another great art kit from Klutz is the Star Wars Thumb Doodles: The Epic Saga at Your Fingertips. Use the four included ink pads to press your thumbprint on a piece of paper. The 39 page book gives you tips and tricks for turning your smudge into your favorite character with ease. You can make Clones, Wookies, Ewoks, Jedi, and even Jabba the Hutt. This is truly an awesome new way to get drawing. The kit includes: four ink pads (green, blue, black, and brown), black marker pen, and double-tipped pencil in green and red. Because of the size of these drawings, you can even create entire scenes from the movie with a little space. Recommended for ages 4-8 years old, one could argue that the unique drawing technique Thumb Doodles offers is great for all ages.
Gifting Klutz Star Wars drawing and art kits are a great way to break the overwhelming cycle of kids getting too many toys at the holidays. Give them something that teaches a new skill and have them well on their way to drawing their favorite Jedi!
