For children in the classroom and at home, using crayons provides so many benefits that we often don’t think about. Crayons are one of the first writing utensils that a child comes in contact with, and their early days of coloring can teach them how to use a certain grip to be able to have some control over their crayon. Something as simple as learning how to hold their crayons can help children later on when they have to start gripping pens and pencils correctly for proper penmanship. While coloring may seem like just having fun to a young child, they are also working on their motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Skills such as these are essential, and what could be better then improving them while enjoying yourself? Another vital benefit that comes along when using crayons is learning how to focus. This is a life skill that everyone needs to learn, and it can definitely help a child out in their upcoming school years when their classrooms are a buzz of excitement and they need to be able to focus on what they are working on as individuals. Although using a box of crayons on a regular basis can really make an impact on a child, the sad news is that not every child has them available.
Conté crayons are often compared to pastels. Granted, both are an artistic medium stick of solid pigment applied directly to the paper. However, Conté crayons are much harder than pastels or charcoals, yielding crisp, tight lines, rather than the more softer, less defined lines characteristic of pastels. Using Conté crayons, an artist can achieve subtle variations of shading in clear, distinct drawings. Conte crayon is quite permanent and artwork produced with a Conte crayon is often treated with a sprayed fixative for added longevity.
Conté crayons are waxier and firmer than soft pastels, so they produce little dust and are easy to control. The sticks, which are 2 1/2” x 1/4” square, can be broken into shorter sections for ease of use for detail and shading. Today, Conte Crayons come in small sets of earth toned colors or larger color sets which include tans, violets, blues, reds, greens and yellows in rich, vibrant shades. The purity of the pigments used in Conte Crayons assures their permanence and longevity in art work. Some artists choose to use colored paper for their work with Conté crayons because the density of pigmentation in the crayon holds up well on a dark or colored paper surface.
Crayons… they are something that everybody has loved at one time or another. I can still remember the excitement of opening up a new box for the first time and seeing all of the colors lined up in a perfect row. Every tip was new and unbroken, making coloring that much more exciting. Careful consideration was used on which crayon to color with first. Was it going to be basic blue or red, or maybe one of the more exotic Crayola colors like purple mountain’s majesty or macaroni and cheese? No matter what color a child may use, it has been shown that coloring with crayons, whether in a coloring book or just on a piece of paper, can really be important in the life of a child.
Let the artist come out in your child. However, since you’re working with crayon wax-melting art, be sure to supervise closely to keep your child from injury. The artwork they create will spread colorful light across your room and into your heart.
I joined her in coloring, using the time to tune into her instead of against her. I found that I enjoyed coloring once again. It did its work on me also. Along with bonding with my child, I also relaxed and enjoyed the calming effect that coloring had on me.
