I love to paint and I expecially love using oils. This is a huge set and wonderful for beginners. I love how many different types of brushes you get and it comes wiht 24 paints so you won't have to spend so much time mixing to get the perfect hue. It also comes with a nice canvas and a mixing pallet.
This would be a great gift for anyone wanting to learn to paint or for older kids. I wouldn't recommend oil paints for younger kids since they are so messy and hard to clean up.
I can't believe how many pieces this set came with for the price. You'd pay twice that at a hobby store!
