The Best Artist Supplies for Kids


Christina Caruso

Fashion Accessory Designer, Artist, TV Personality, and Boy MOM. Check out my weekly IGlives, FSWF, @ChristinaCarusoStyle, as I sketch and interview inspiring peeps ( parents too)

As a fashion accessory designer I am always drawing and creating. One of the silver linings (during this incredible time) was being at home with my son and introducing him to the world of art and design. Our friends at iHeartArt by Bright Stripes created some amazing artist grade art supplies that’s both fantastic for kids… and parents! So, when I’m doing a FSWF IGlive segment, sketching with friends on 560 7th or designing jewelry, you bet I’m using these cool paints and markers. Oh and yes, when we do “art time with mom” it’s all about the iHeartArt sets, paints and markers. My son LOVES! The best part – iHeartArt Gives Back! 5% of profits are donated to Art Feeds International Program that gives art lessons, teacher training and art supplies to kids in need around the world.
