Amazing Gift Ideas for the Art Geek in your life!

Welcome to the fifth gift guide in the Ultimate Gift Guide series for geeks! This guide is dedicated to art geeks and if you missed the introduction post here’s a reminder of what an art geek is: They’re your paint splattered, paint brush in their hair, sketch book carrying friend, family member or co-worker who likes to visit galleries and museums. People tend to expect artists to be passionate and energetic with a wacky personal style but that is not always the case. A lot of artists are very private about their work.
