I recently purchased a Creativity for Kids Snake Safari and was very pleased with the service and product I received. The ordering process was easy and customer service was excellent. Since there is a large variety of products, supplies and activities, I would definitely order from Misterart.com again!

Styles & Periods
Regionalism

In the 1930s, after the alienation of war and the economic hardships of the Depression, art in America became more conservative, reacting against the principles of European Modernism. Regionalism, one of the two main styles of painting at this time, centered on “American” themes, and in particular, scenes from the Midwest. The Regionalists’ work is figurative and representational, rejecting any overtly abstract influences. Nationalism is dominant in these paintings that strove to establish a new style that reflected uniquely American concerns. Small towns, families living on farms, and the American landscape were glorified, as if propaganda to feed a tired nation. Thomas Hart Benton was a leader among the Regionalists. He created murals based on sketches he produced while traveling extensively throughout the United States. While he dominated the style, his work had many aspects of pre-war international art. Another major figure was Grant Wood, whose American Gothic became one of America’s most celebrated paintings.

I bought a set of these from HSN. I am always looking for scissors, especially since I am left handed and I have to turn scissors upside down in the first place for them to cut. They came and I used them. Then I bought another set and then another set. They are the best scissors on the market, bar none. They are comfortable to hold, sharper than any scissors I have ever used, and I love them. I have a set downstairs, I have a set upstairs, and I have a set in my travel tote. I would recommend these scissors without hesitation.

I used Porcelaine 150 about 14 years ago on some glasses; they have been washed over and over in the dishwasher, and the color is still bright and beautiful. I did bake them in the oven as the directions specified. This is a great product!

Tulip does it again with a new face painting kit. While I can't get my favourite paints (Palmer) in the supplies I need, we, The Balloonatics will test this new kit and see how kid friendly it will be. We will test toxicity, staining, melding of colours, creating special effects, and just how many faces we can paint with one kit. Tulip is wonderful in its other many many products and I highly recommend them. We will post our findings as soon as we test them out.
