This is a great child's art set, which includes lots of art media for them to experiment with as young artists.

I wasn't expecting Crayola quality but I was expecting it to be better than what it was.

Color Name: MultiSize Name: 80 Piece Set
This set is of extremely poor quality. Every material is cheap. Some people might try to rationalize that it's okay to give something like this to a child, because hey, kids don't care if the supplies are crap, right? Well, some kids do care, and the ones who don't know any better will still be frustrated that the materials don't "work" properly. The colored pencils don't even compare in quality to Crayola colored pencils, which aren't the best quality from an artist's standpoint. The pastels are junk- like oily crayons...again, a set of Crayola oil pastels are of much better quality than these (Crayola actually makes a pretty good set of oil pastels, and Amazon sells them). The "watercolor cakes" are a complete joke. They're lightly glued in, and every time the case is closed, several of them fall out. The drawing pencils are so cheap that you'd do way better to just use a regular #2 school pencil to draw with. Ours also came with markers, which were the extremely low quality type you get when you buy a book from the dollar store with markers included...horrible. My kids were gifted two sets over Christmas, and while we appreciate the thought behind it, it was shocking how crappy the quality of ALL the materials was.

It's unbelievable that this set could be priced as high as $39.99. Right now it's on sale for $12.95, but honestly, it's still not worth even that much. Don't fall for the temptation to get "80 pieces" for just a few bucks. Those 80 pieces will either end up in the garbage, or cause your budding artist much frustration and disappointment.
Before I sound like an art-supply snob (I'm not!), let me say that this review is not in any way about me trying to sound superior and saying how the expensive professional supplies are superior to discount-store supplies.

This product was described fantastically, exactly what we wanted ..... but when it arrived, we (and more importantly, our daughter) were very disappointed. The quality of the markets is poor, but what is worse is that the "24 oil pastels" are NOT oil pastels - they are just 24 additional crayons with the words "oil pastel" on them. We have seen and used real oil pastels, and these are not oil pastels. Recommend that people steer clear of this product!

Color Name: MultiSize Name: 80 Piece Set
I received this set as a well meaning gift from someone who knew I was an artist thinking it would be the perfect gift for me. While the quality is definitely far below the quality I use and would buy for myself it isn't all that horrible either. Well, except for the brushes. Give the brushes to a young child to use with their watercolors and poster paints.

Generally, I use the watercolors and color pencils when I'm doing quick drawings and sketches to add a bit of color. And all the products on one thing or another when working out ideas so I'm not using up my better products at the idea stage of things. There are pieces I actually think of as finished art after using these products, along with other more expensive art supplies.

It's a rather nice set for a Junior or Senior High School student who is a budding artist as well as the beginning adult hobbyist. Not bad for the seasoned artist to use when working out ideas or to add color to quick sketches or doodles.

If you think buying this set at this price is going to give you the same sort of products like Prismacolor or Derwent pencils, Winsor Newton Cotman Watercolors, and Holbein Artist's Oil Pastel then you are madder than a hatter and residing on the wrong side of the looking glass.

Color Name: MultiSize Name: 120 Piece Set Verified Purchase
I bought this art set as a gift and I was thrilled at the variety of mediums along with the affordable price. I should have known - you get what you pay for. When I received this I was bummed because it looks so cheap. The items inside look like things you can get at the 99 cent store and the box they are in is flimsy and plastic. It is still a good variety but make sure you are not buying for someone remotely serious about art.

Color Name: BrownSize Name: 151 Piece Set Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Length: 1:02 Mins
*Younger children need careful supervision with oil paints.

This kit is 'Professional' in terms of the types of items included, but know that you are not getting professional quality. (*EDIT: see update)

For a child or someone that has never done more than a doodle, or someone that wants to experiment with different mediums before investing in something better, this could be a starting point.

The markers are similar to the types you'd buy at a drugstore. As far as oils, these are fine to see if you like working with oil, and then you can be thrilled when you get Grumbacher oils. The included brushes are useless for oil. Using them will make you think you hate oil painting because they make working with oil a challenge.

For the pencils, think of pigment as a block of chalk that needs to be ground to a powder and then mixed with other things to create the 'lead' in the pencil. In order to have the color even it must be an incredibly fine powder or it leaves dots the size of the powder particle. Not important for many, but hardly 'Professional'.

At this price point, one does not expect professional equipment, so in my most humble opinion it should be called 'Darice Value Set'. If it were, it would gain a star.

UPDATE 12/5/13: When I first posted this review, it was called 'Darice Professional'. The wording has now changed.
The manufacturer has commented that some reviewers received a kit that is not the final retail product. It is my assumption that my review is based on what may have been a prototype.
I will update again with more information the moment it becomes available to me.
UPDATE 12/6/13: Got a peek at the real set, while the box is slightly nicer, the contents are the same. Prototype was only sent to reviewers, according to manufacturer. I give this product three stars based on the 'sale' price which is half the suggested retail price.

Hi John,
Thank you for your time in reviewing the New 159 Piece Art Set. The Art Set that you received was a prototype that was not production quality. Time constraints for the Consumer testing Program did not allow sufficient time for sending out production art sets. This is a great art set for many levels of artistic abilities, and will make a great Christmas gift.
