We Heart Art! Celebrate International Artist’s Day With These Creative Art Sets

International Artist’s Day is the perfect reason to get your creative juices flowing with these art sets

If you haven’t heart of International Artist’s Day, here’s a little background: beginning in 2004, IAD was created to celebrate the contributions made to society by artists around the world. It also just so happens to be the birthday of Pablo Picasso, who was born October 25, 1881.
