Oil Pastels at their Finest with French Artist Nathalie Novi by Djeco, Our FAVORITE Art Brand

Review  by The Traveling Sisterhood

Djeco won Best Art Supplies of the Year, and it’s easy to see why!  These art kits are incredible!  After reading about them, I was expecting our first one (Djeco Nathalies Oil Pastel Workshop) to be great but it actually exceeded our expectations.  Today my youngest daughter, who is only 7, made an absolute pastel masterpiece.

This semester, my children are learning about Europe.  They love geography (yes, 2nd graders can love geography)–it’s so exciting to discover new places, people, and cultures, and art is a large part of every culture.  When I was notified that I’d been approved to blog for Timberdoodle, I thought it’d be awesome to find an art kit that would compliment our study of Europe.  That’s when I came across Djeco Nathalie’s Oil Pastel Workshop.  The set features the work of professional artist and illustrator Nathalie Novi, one of the greatest French artists specializing in the use of pastels. The workshop kit is geared towards an older child (9 and up), teen, or adult looking to expand her skills. My kiddos are a bit under the recommended age range but they’re very experienced when it comes to art and have used pastels in the past.  This kit was perfect for them and it went along awesomely since we’ve been learning about the countries of Europe, including France.  They loved it.  I loved it.

Learn From One of France’s Greatest Pastel Artists

The Djeco art kits are award winners.  They’re made in Paris, France, actually, and they’re a family owned company.  The Djeco kits come in a variety of mediums (oil pastels, paints, glitter art, and more) and are geared toward a wide variety of ages.  While our kit was for older children, there are also kits for preschoolers and younger children.

The art kit we reviewed retails for 32.99 but Timberdoodle sells it for 29.99.  You also earn 30 doodle dollars with the purchase, which equals $3 off a future purchase. The Doodle Dollars incentive is pretty awesome, and that’s a very affordable price for such high quality art supplies.  The kit contains enough to make 4 nice works of art, plus a nice art supply box, instruction guide, and pastels that will last you for many more art projects down the road.

I can’t wait to order another Djeco art kit from Timberdoodle!  These are definitely going to be a main part of next school year’s Art curriculum.  While my family is really artistic, I recommend these kits to homeschooling parents who aren’t–your children can feel like and become artists through little effort on your part.  The instruction guides really do it all!

Special thanks to the wonderful people at Timberdoodle for providing me with this review opportunity!
