Student & School Soft Pastels
School pastels are basic sticks of color. Similar to chalk, pastels quickly and efficiently lay color onto a paper (ideally toothed), or a textured board. Pastels make a great teaching tool because they are fast, easy to apply, and the color is unadulterated. Pastels also blend and layer without resist, making complete sketches and studies possible in a short amount of time.
Despite being inexpensive, these pastels lay down a nice amount of rich, bright, pure color - right from the stick.
