Most of us who make crafts or are “arty” in some way have hoards of art supplies and can sit down and make a beautiful bouquet of flowers out of scraps of cardstock and paper because we have plenty of supplies on hand. What about those of you who don’t have hoards of art supplies? And what if you just want to do some fun for yourself or with your family? I have a solution for you!
Many local artists and businesses in and around the Albuquerque area have fun and fabulous art kits with everything you need to get those creative juices flowing! Please support them!
