Best oil pastels for Kids' art lessons. Good, bright colors
By Penelope the President of Art Smarts
from San Diego, CA
I use it on recycled 'brown bag hides" and show the kids how to recycle the grocery bags and when oil pastel is used on it, it looks like the texture of an animal hide. Fantastic. Giraffes, lions, elephants, zebras, cougars, tigers, rhinos, etc.

Like a kid in a candy store!
By Pansy Painter
I had not had a large set of these oil pastels for myself until my students began to bring them to art class in my studio. The excitement of looking at and opening this beautiful pastel set shows on each face as they get them out of their backpacks for classroom use. I use a more professional stick for my own art but had to get a set of these for myself for the fun of it! They have a lot of pigment and work better than other less expensive brands. I highly recommend!
Great for kids

Great oil pastels for kids
from San Diego
I use oil pastels frequently with Art Smarts after school art lessons. These are the best to work with for kids. They are easy to blend with a third color or with their hands. This pack gives a variety better than the usual 24 pack. great deal

Perfect for Experimenting
from Dallas, TX
For the price, this product is the best. I use these on mixed media or toned gray paper for my Studio Art class. I can blend and layer rather easily. These are good for beginners into pastel, or just for fun.Yes, a problem is how quick you can use up these sticks and the lack of open stock available... but an option is to go with another brand to replace colors like white and black, to name a couple. That can also be a good way of moving up to better pastels. However, my first two pieces did require a lot of black, and as for breaking, the only pastel I've had a problem with this happening was white. It broke on me twice, ultimately ending up in thirds, which ended up to my advantage as I didn't know you could clean pastels with baby wipes, supposedly. I don't know if that works for these oil pastels. I haven't been able to mix new colors, except for darker grays out of the 25 set, but I also did not try seriously except with the gray, so it may be possible, just lay down the layers. Overall, if you're new to pastels, go for this and stay away from crayola. Those are dusty, and rub away into nothing but a paper stain if you try to blend them. If you have more knowledge of actual pastel technique and experience then the average nonpastel artist, these are good for a tight budget, but maybe not more than that.
