My 6 yr old is VERY interested in being an artist. The boy has been drawing people with arms and legs and detail since he was 22 mos old. He LOVES to draw and paint. He has requested "art supplies" for his 7th b-day coming up Aug 30th. I haven't a clue where to start. All he talks about is being an artist and being an art teacher. I really want to encourage this. I took him to local art gallery and now his more interested than ever. Please give me some ideas on what sorts of things are agood medium for him to start off working with and of coarse safe for him to use. I have read the posts on what kind of paints are toxic so now i am just wondering what is best for a child his age to start using. I really appreciate you all taking the time to help me out, thanks.
