Derwent Artists Colored Pencil Sets
Derwent Artists Colored Pencil Sets’ range of round-barreled colored pencils includes primary and secondary colors along with their relative hues. Their waxy texture makes them ideal for layering and blending, so you can create as many of your own colors as you wish. The thick (4.5mm) color leads have excellent strength and can produce any variation in shading or intensity of color. They are non-toxic and lightfast.
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they’re now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a “toy store for artists.” 80 years in and they’re still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
