For Creatives at every level of their artistic journey

Reclaim your creativity with classical (non-stuffy) drawing skills.  An online sketch class with Carolin Peters at Cura Studios is the perfect gift for creatives and artists of all skill levels and training.


A membership to your favorite regional museum.  Here in Orange County, California we recommend The Bowers Museum and the Orange County Museum of Art.


American artist Katie Rodgers curated a collection of Petits Roche pastels with French maker La Maison du Pastel (the oldest pastel manufacturer in the world.)  A variety of sizes and prices are available including this "Harvest of Color" 12-piece set.


A mainstay in our studio, Decomposition sketchbooks and notebooks are made from 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper; the glorious imagery (everything from gargoyles to peacocks) is printed with soy ink.


A Blue Q pencil case.  Made from 95% post-consumer material; 1% of the sale of each bag supports global environmental initiatives.


The Bowers Museum Gallery Store is a treasure trove of art, fashion and craft books.  Many of their in-stock titles are hard to find elsewhere.  Our pick:  "Women in Art: 50 Fearless Creatives Who Inspired The World" 


Master woodworker William Ng offers both online instruction and in-person classes at his Anaheim, California workshop.  His "Fundamentals of Fine Woodworking" course is a robust deep-dive with high-quality instruction that's perfect for the woodworker on your list, whether they're a beginner or advanced and in need of a refresher course.
