Kidzworld reviews art supplies from Sakura of America!

If you want to get in touch with your inner artist, you're gonna need the right supplies! Kidzworld is taking a look at some cool and colorful products from Sakura!

Pigma Sensei Manga Drawing Set

Whether you're a professional or you're just starting out, this six-piece set has all of the basic tools you'll need to draw manga. The kit features a "fixed sleeve" mechanical pencil and graphite eraser plus fine tip, bullet tip, bold tip, and plastic tip pens. The pens don't smear or feather and they don't bleed. Plus Sakura supports Manga Start, an artist group that encourages kids' illustration.

Sticklers and Soufflé Pens

If you're a stickler for color, the Sticklers pack is for you. The kit comes with self-adhesive silver (or gold) sticker outlines that you can color in with the included Soufflé pens! The pens have a specially formulated "puffy" ink that also works well for decorating cell phones, iPods or yearbooks. We love the look of these cool pens, but they can be a little tricky to use. Make sure not to go over the same area repeatedly for best results.

Gelly Roll Shades

Pick your favorite color and get it in three Gelly Roll shades! These color-matched three-packs have pens that come in a metallic finish, glitter finish, and a regular finish. These are the ultimate yearbook signing pens for the girl who wants to ooze fabulousity!

Cray-Pas Junior Artist Pastels

So your art has moved beyond the crayon stage and you need some new supplies? It's worth checking out. The pastels are smooth to apply and great for mixing and blending. Packs come in either 12,16, 25, or 50 intense colors that can be used to achieve a variety of effects.

Truly these are the end times I'm just going to post this and then not reply to you again because I already know how it would go.   You have given me two individual people in the first study, and five in the second. I'm not following how this is a consensus of anything. The HomeNet 1 study was inconclusive, it didn't exactly account for the people's different uses for Internet use. HomeNet 2 even validates my claim. They found that heavier internet use leads to a decline in face to face social interaction. But again, this test was before Internet networking became what it is today, along with every single study you have mentioned. I have found some good studies out there, but not anything that I wouldn't have to pay 30 bucks for or whatever. I never said that The Internet makes people lonely, I stated that the Internet is where lonely people go to find false solace. And that, is unhealthy. I'm just going to post this and then not reply to you again because I already know how it would go. OMG You're a psychic? What's my future?

Truly these are the end times I'm just going to post this and then not reply to you again because I already know how it would go. People are not passively affected by technology, but actively shape its use and influence (Fischer 1992, Hughes & Hans 2001). The Internet has unique, even transformational qualities as a communication channel, including relative anonymity and the ability to easily link with others who have similar interests, values, and beliefs. Research has found that the relative anonymity aspect encourages self-expression, and the relative absence of physical and nonverbal interaction cues (e.g., attractiveness) facilitates the formation of relationships on other, deeper bases such as shared values and beliefs. At the same time, however, these “limited bandwidth” features of Internet communication also tend to leave a lot unsaid and unspecified, and open to inference and interpretation. Not surprisingly, then, one’s own desires and goals regarding the people with whom one interacts have been found to make a dramatic difference in the assumptions and attributions one makes within that informational void. Despite past media headlines to the contrary, the Internet does not make its users depressed or lonely, and it does not seem to be a threat to community life---quite the opposite, in fact. If anything, the Internet, mainly through #-####, has facilitated communication and thus close ties between family and friends, especially those too far away to visit in person on a regular basis. The Internet can be fertile territory for the information of new relationships as well, especially those based on shared values and interests as opposed to attractiveness and physical appearance as is the norm in the off-line world (see Hatfield & Sprecher 1986). And in any event, when these Internet-formed relationships get close enough (i.e., when sufficient trust has been established), people tend to bring them into their "real world"---that is, the traditional face-to-face and telephone interaction sphere. This means nearly all of the typical person's close friends will be in touch with them in "real life"---on the phone or in person--- and not so much over the Internet, which gives the lie to the media stereotype of the Internet as drawing people away from their "real-life" friends.
