Product Description:

Imagine crayons that transform into watercolors with just a few drops of water. This wax pastel set does just that! To test this product, I scribbled out a rainbow on paper, wet it with few drops of water, then blended it with my finger. The colors stayed vibrant, but blended like magic! Each color softly bled into the next. The effect would be even more gorgeous with a brush! These would be fun to use with our Famous Artist coloring books (especially Impressionists like Monet). I used them on a notepad, but they would work better on absorbent watercolor paper so it doesn't wrinkle as the water dries. I showed these to our Graphic Designer and she now wants a set! Each densely-colored pastel is about 4" long. The set of 10 includes rainbow colors plus black, white and brown. Stores in a convenient tin (3.75" x 4.5"). ~Sara

Category Description for ARTistic Pursuits:

Once in a great while you will come across an art program that is so easy-to-use, open-ended, and brimming with all sorts of exciting possibilities that you just want to use it yourself. This was certainly the case with ARTistic Pursuits when I first reviewed it. The basic philosophy of ARTistic Pursuits is to combine what it defines as the four essential areas, or categories, of art into a short, easily manageable and flexible lesson. The first category is Elements of Art, or "what art is made of" which include what we would think of as the basics of the actual drawing (line, shape, color, etc.). The next is Composition, or "how art is arranged" (balance, proportion, space), third is Media (variation), and finally, History (becoming familiar with different artists, styles, and periods). This seems like a lot to cover in one program, but ARTistic Pursuits does it surprisingly well and very naturally. The early elementary (K-3) level covers these same four areas in each lesson, but in a less in-depth and more informal manner. The whole series has been revised for 2013, and each volume now features 36 lessons (previously 32). You'll notice a slight shift in grade levels (books previously

A great new art supply
Watercolor crayons are new to our family and have been a great addition to art lessons. I have enjoyed as much or more as the kids!
