Wet Paint, in St. Paul is a favorite art shop. I like to visit when I get the chance to be in the area. Creativity is stacked to the ceiling in here!
I enjoyed shopping here and want to purchase a journal that is made out of a discarded textbook. The covers are spiral bound and it is filled with a mixture of unique paper!
The other thing on my shopping list is some ink style colored pencils by Dewent. The colors are more intense than regular watercolor pencils and once dry, they are more permanent. The larger set that I'd like to purchase has a DVD on technique that I may want to show to the 5th and 6th graders to help them get inspired to use their own sets of watercolor pencil more independently.
