If I could give 10 stars I would. I got this for my stepmother who has had a stroke and paralyzed on one side. She was an excellent artist and won first place with her sketches year after year.This kit sparked her mind and talents again. Everything you need is included in a nice case that zips.She explained what each piece was and showed how to use the pencils with all the extras for different looks. She was very impressed. . So very happy to see her sketch again.
