I still remember being about seven and getting my first set of “serious colored pencils” from my mom. I recall the pride of knowing I’d outgrown the kid stuff, and that I had been deemed worthy enough to own art supplies that came in a fancy tin with French words on it. So I was flooded with great memories when I saw the Artemis Plant Colored Pencils at the Wooden Wagon.
These German-made pencils come in a lovely wooden box, and derive their soft color palette from plants like buckthorn, indigo and madder root. It’s not a toddler gift for sure – more like a very special, thoughtful item you pair with a professional sketchpad to honor a budding talent. Who, by the way, just may remember it for life. –Liz
