Stockmar Block Crayons - 8 ct
Details: The Wax Blocks, which are made from the same materials and available in identical colours to the crayons, have outstanding drawing properties and appeal to the senses. Their size and flat shape mean they sit well in the hand and are specially suited for small children. What is more, children can draw colourful areas easily, and arrive at interesting effects. For example by dragging the long edge of the block in a wave-like fashion across the paper. From the very first "pencil", Stockmar's assortment of unbreakable Wax Blocks grows as you grow. And so too, the artistic possibilities.

Brand: Based in Schleswig-Holstein, the Stockmar company has been making quality products for school and art teaching for many decades, since 1922. The Stockmar logo combines the hexagonal form of a beehive with Goethe's color circle. Beeswax and color: at Stockmar that is what it all comes down to. As well as aesthetic principles and art teaching considerations, ecological and social aspects are also central to the development and manufacture of their products. Regular painting workshops for the employees involving a college art teacher, and profit-sharing by the staff (they are not a capital owned company) are things that are taken for granted in Stockmar's philosophy. Last but not least they are fully aware of the responsibility placed on them by their customers' confidence in the quality of their products.
