Of all the Klutz project books I've tried, this one holds the fondest memories. Partially because of how long the art supplies lasted. The paints you're given are actually pretty high quality, and kept on going through several subsequent projects. The brush actually still works, literally years later its still my favorite.

Going through this book did not make me into a dramatically prolific artist, but it inspired me to try a new medium and demystified alot of things about painting. Can you erase? Can you sketch first? Is it fun? To the last question, its a resounding yes.
