This is my PIF.
I was the recipient of a full set of Rapidograph pens on Freecycle. I have given away fabric in the past when it became overwhelming.
When I moved things into my new studio space I knew I had way too much in the form of art supplies. I had kept extras for 2 reasons: one was to have a traveling set and the other was that I periodically gave free lessons to someone who wanted to learn painting basics.
A mom who home schools her teenage daughter posted on Freecycle for art supplies. After a couple of emails back and forth with her, I put together this beginning art kit. The table top easel, brushes, artist box and pan watercolors are lovingly used…the acrylic paints are a new student set. The book is an old one, but good for a beginner, too. The mom is picking this up today and is very excited!
If you have PIFed recently, I would love to hear about it in the comments.
