Sakura Cray-Pas Junior Artist Oil Pastel Set

Sakura Cray-Pas Junior Artist Oil Pastel Set


Reviewed by Christine Weiher, Editor,

If you haven't dived into the world of oil pastels, then the Sakura Cray-Pas Junior Artist Set is the one to try. Free-form drawing is a great way to express creativity and imagination. Technique and expression is where the young artist will blossom.

The Cray-Pas Junior Artist Set comes with 16 student-quality oil pastels that meet non-toxicity requirements, will not peel, crack or flake and are easily blendable. These pastels create a smooth color that can blend, smear, overlap and mix with other colors. The bright colors are intense and great for growing kids. For those wanting to try new techniques, these are amazing for scratching, stenciling and water color resists.

There are a variety of stick sizes; the chubby size is for small hands to grasp, there's a jumbo stick and a regular size. There's even a colorpack with a year's supply of sticks for educators to purchase. After playing around with these pastels you'll quickly realize how creamy and bold the pigments are and you will fall in love.

Kids love to color and paint, so this set might be a good alternative to paint as it's not as messy and it produces great coverage. Color blended with these pastels is also a great way to teach creating new colors.

With Cray-Pas you can hold them like a pencil, clench them in your fist or hold them from the side and they'll all produce a different effect. Basic drawing, color-mixing and learning different techniques can all be learned with these pastels from Sakura.
