Gift Guide: For the Artist in Your Life
Tucson is an artist’s community; with local gems like the DeGrazia studio, The Tucson Museum of Art and with our diverse downtown scene it’s no wonder creative souls gather here. From filmmakers to chalk artists and sculpture geniuses, Tucson has the most unique array of talent. Here to encourage and cultivate the inner artist in everyone is Bookmans! We have the perfect gift for beginners and novices alike.
Our “How-To” sections for crafts, painting and sketching offer the perfect push to get your inner creativity started. Pick up a paper collage book or try your hand at alternative crafting. We have sections for both to make it super easy to shop. Is your special artist more refined? We have painting and drawing books to please even the most classic of artists. Our art sections are no joke, there’s a book for every artist in your life.
If you haven’t heard, coloring is the new fad. Not only has adult coloring been proven to reduce stress and help stimulate your brain, it’s a great way to get on the floor and bond with your younger relatives. Bookmans has taken it upon ourselves to provide you with the best coloring books for all ages. From steam punk to owls, seascapes to cats, there is a coloring book to match even the silliest of interests.
While Bookmans is a buy, sell, trade business you might be surprised at the materials we get for creating art. Some of our locations currently have brush sets for painting, charcoal for sketching and colored pencils for doodling. We also have a slew of sketchbooks and journals to keep all your masterpieces safe and protected. Our sketchbooks even go so far as to offer different types of pages. Whether you use watercolors or ink, our books are perfect for whichever expressive journey you wish to take.
When you love creating its safe to say you love looking too. We have an array of framed and unframed artwork perfect to display on a wall or add your own special mark upon. Look at all the frames we have on display and you’ll notice there’s no generic photo inside, but a specially chosen work of art for a cheap and easy gift. Bookmans also offers paintings by the local artist Sid Cedargreen for your art novice.
Bookmans is your one stop shop this holiday season with gifts for every member on your shopping list. The best part about it, is your ability to use store credit! Lighten your load and bring items in for trade and then gobble up all the treasure we’ve been saving just for you!
