This is just the coolest thing for my child. I homeschool and this is exactly what we needed for painting. It comes with the carrying case that has a drawer with 3 compartments. The easel opens up and is secure. This set came with 5 or 6 different size canvases, 48 acrylic paints, and a colour wheel. I researched tons of sets and this was the best deal by far. I'm seriously shocked at the quality, this is amazing.
