For students pursuing degrees in art, gifts that can be used to further their artistic pursuits are appropriate for any occasion. Gifts suited to their specific area of study are both personal and practical, as the gifts can be used to create projects for school or in their free time.
Basic Art Supplies
Basic art supplies are essential for art students and are something that will be constantly needed. A set of high-quality brushes and paints are appropriate for a painter, while a set of charcoals, inks and drawing pencils are appropriate for a drawing or illustration student. Clay and glazes are appropriate for sculpting students. Art gum erasers, brush cleaning tanks, sketchbooks and canvases are other examples of gifts that are appropriate for art students.
Leather Bound Portfolio
A high-quality leather bound portfolio will allow the student to display and organise their work, as well as keep the work protected from wear and tear. The portfolio can be personalised by having it engraved with the student's name or initials.
A desktop easel will allow the student to work on a vertical surface in small areas. This way they can work on school projects in their dorm room or at home. This gift is appropriate for both painting and drawing students.
A state-of-the-art digital camera is a gift idea appropriate for a photography or film major, providing that the digital camera has video capabilities. A basic digital camera is appropriate for all other art students, as they can use the camera to document their work for their portfolio or website.
Art books, whether technical or a collection of the work of the student's favourite artist is an appropriate gift idea for an art student of any major. A technical book can help them learn and utilise new techniques within their work, while a collection of artwork can serve as entertainment and memorabilia.
