In this self-portrait art lesson, students celebrate diversity and self expression by creating an art collage inspired by the book The Skin You Live In, by Michael Tyler.
Creativity for Life / Colored Pencils
Hi everyone,Mou Saha here with a fun doodle page using a Pitt Artist Pens and Goldfaber Color Pencils. My youngest is 4 years old and she loves to go on nature walks with me. And much like me, she too likes to collect rocks, bugs, leaves, sticks that speak to her. As she geared up for pre-school this year, she wanted to take all her finds to school to show her friends. I really liked her collection and so I sketched and doodled with my Pitt Artist Pen to capture Jia’s Show n' Tell!
The Faber-Castell Creativity Suite turned a little more youthful last Friday as we welcomed over a dozen children from our families for our World Colors Launch Party. Art Educator Franz Spohn lead the children through creating a "Pop-Up Family Portrait" using our newly released World Colors Colored Pencils.
In this lesson plan, we combine the unique qualities of three types of pencils: Goldfaber Aqua Watercolor Pencils, Goldfaber Color Pencils, and Faber-Castell Graphite Pencils. These pencils combined, produce an impressive effect, and offer an ease of use that makes them fun, and mastered with a little practice. Inspired by the sight of the Woodpecker, I thought about what a good pencil drawing a bird could make.
Discover the process behind creating Faber Castell’s quality colored pencils, carefully crafted to best serve the vision of the aspiring and professional artist. Providing quality color pencils is a craft we’ve mastered and have been dedicated to for hundreds of years. Born from wood growing in our FSC certified forests, every step in the manufacturing of our color pencils promises a quality result.
Faber-Castell’s collection of colored pencils coincides with our passion to support your creativity at every age and skill level. That is why we created our Polychromos artist’s color pencils and Goldfaber color pencils in our Art & Graphic and Creative Studio lines. Every colored pencil of ours is manufactured for exceptional performance with high-quality pigments and SV bonding but hold their own unique build and qualities.
