Djeco Claire’s Oil Pastel Workshop, Love It!
After using the Djeco Nathalies Oil Pastel Workshop last month, my kiddos were so excited to try their hands at more pastel artwork. We decided to try the Djeco “Claire’s Oil Pastel Workshop” which is meant for children from 6-10, grade levels 1 to 5. However, my son is only 5 and he did very well so I would definitely recommend it for 5 year olds with some experience in art. Claire’s Oil Pastel Workshop is also part of Timberdoodle’s Second Grade Core Curriculum.
Claire’s Oil Pastel Workshop from Djeco is a beautiful introductory art set that teaches children how to work with gel pastels. Featuring vivid, charming jungle animal images, Claire’s Oil Pastel Workshop is designed by illustrator Claire Rebillard to show how to create colorful art with oil pastels, and yields four works of art that will look magnificent on any wall, as you can see in our photos above!
The Djeco art kits are award winners. They’re made in Paris, France 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 elementary aged children, there are also kits for preschoolers and older children or young adults.
The art kit we reviewed retails for 29.99 but Timberdoodle sells it for 26.99. You also earn 27 doodle dollars with the purchase, which equals $2.70 off a future purchase. The Doodle Dollars incentive is pretty awesome, and that’s an affordable price for such high quality art supplies, especially considering that the pastels will be able to be used for many more pictures, and the art supply box is a great art caddy that will last you.
I can’t wait to order another Djeco art kit from Timberdoodle! These are now the main feature of our Art curriculum. While my family is naturally artistic, I also 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!
