The natural world isn’t just a source of artistic inspiration; its a source for all our art supplies also.

-Process wax & pigments for use in crayon making
-Different types of natural canvases found in nature
-Unique ways to use your newly created crayons
Each student will leave the class with their very own set of 6 natural crayons to take home and use for all their future artistic creations. Whether they’re coloring in a book, marking on a canvas, wood, stone or bone, these natural crayons will bring joy and excitement to anyone interested in the wonderful world of organic artistry.
