Last month I told you the exciting news about the Inventors Workshop which is being held on September 22nd. And today I want to talk about the Skinny Sketcher which has been invented by Gillian Logan, one of the speakers at the workshop. I received two free Skinny Sketcher drawing kits to review, which have now been road-tested by the boys.
Son1 opted for London Flavour whilst son2 chose The Fast and The Curious.
Each kit contains 6 drawing designs and sheets of tracing paper, plus a propelling pencil in a visually attractive container which looks like a takeaway coffee cup. I can imagine these standing out on the shop shelf.
Son1 chose to draw the London Eye from his kit.
Meanwhile son2 did all the drawings in his kit in about the same time as son1 spent on one drawing, although not nearly as carefully. However they both enjoyed doing their drawings and I was pleased to see them absorbed in what they were doing rather than their usual request for more screen time.
The designs are built up step-by-step, a great way to help you learn to draw freehand. There are six kits in the range. The other four are Architecture, Butterflies & Blossoms, Capture The Castle and Dinosaurs.
These kits currently retail on Amazon for £6.99 each compared to an RRP of £7.99, excellent value in my opinion. They would make great stocking fillers or use them for party bags. I always try to avoid the standard party bag fare and usually opt for books, so these would be nice instead.
And I’m hosting a rafflecopter competition to giveaway the full range of Skinny Sketcher drawing kits to two lucky winners. That is 6 kits each, so loads of fun.
