Kids Painting and Drawing Supplies

I was an elementary art teacher for many years, teaching at levels Kindergarten through 6th grade at several school systems. Together with another teacher in the field, we wrote the founding curriculum for a large school district in Farmington, Maine. It was a wonderful experience because who doesn't love the kids who take out a box of crayons and says, "let me see what I can do today." My job was glorious because of those children. I taught in three county schools and saw around 1000 students/week. I followed them through sixth grade and could proudly call each by name.

Let's start with CRAYONS:

"It's the rare baby boomer who doesn't remember one like it — the first box with the built-in sharpener." Crayons take us back in time with their look, scent, and feel. A Crayola box of 64 colors is a fond memory as captured by this article, The Colors of Childhood (Smithsonian Magazine)
