If you are studying sketching at school or college or just want to try this absorbing hobby then the Derwent Academy Sketching Set with its range of sketching materials and accessories is ideal.

Derwent Academy is a range of art media, backed by over 175 years of Derwent’s experience of producing fine art materials. It features all the key art media from pencils to pastels and paints.

They have been specifically created to provide the ideal introduction to the world of sketching and drawing with the perfect combination of quality and performance.

The Derwent Academy Sketching Set contains all you need to get started; Sketching Pencils in 6 versatile degrees H, HB, B, 2B, 4B, 6B. The softer pencils (B to 6B) are best suited to sketching and blending while the harder pencils (HB & H) are ideal for straight line and detailed work; 3 Charcoal Pencils and 3 Charcoal Blocks in light, medium and dark plus a stick of Willow Charcoal.

Charcoal is one of the most traditional sketching tools and is perfect for creating striking portraits and expressive free flowing landscapes; and finally, 3 Pastel Blocks in white, mid grey and grey. They can be used to create striking images on dark paper.

The Derwent Academy Sketching Set also contains a selection of accessories which can be used, not only to look after the pencils but also create interesting creative effects.

The set includes a 2-hole metal pencil sharpener with a large hole for the charcoal pencils; a paper stump which makes the difficult job of blending dusty media like charcoal and pastels that much easier; a plastic eraser which can be used to remove areas of graphite and a kneadable eraser ideal for lifting out areas of unwanted pigment to create highlights.

Derwent Academy Sketching Set is available at all good art shops priced £9.99.
