They are many years from Senneliere. Frankly, crayons can be used, it is all about motor control, not the price of the pastels. Oil pastels are actually very similar to crayons. I believe when I was at the beginning of my art career, the teachers had us using mainly chalk.

I don't think it makes a difference with oil pastels. It's the project that decides the needed value. If the students are just starting out without any technique on how to use them, then all pastels perform satisfactory.

When students get to more advance drawing or blending needs and appreciate the higher costing pastel, then buy it.

Enasco or dickblick art site would sell them. At my school we always break the oil pastels in half and two kids share one box.

Crayola is sort of meh, but I always get at least one parent asking about allergens in the different art supplies. Crayola states it does not have a, b, c......z.

The others may not have it either, but they don't usually state allergen free.

School art or a serious art class?

You know primo supplies are open your wallet and scream.

I don't like knock offs but I can't justify high end stuff for the class. Never had issues with Crayola.

What grades? That would be a consideration too..

Finally ran out of all the left-over oil pastels remaining in the room I inherited. Any recommendations for the best performing, longest-lasting, vibrant colors, and economical? (Didn't just make everyone burst out laughing, did I?) Suggestions, please!
