A new school year is upon us. I’m not sure where the summer went. It was just June about 10 minutes ago. But I assure you it is time to get the routine back in order. There are many blogs publishing ideas of how to label your kids new clothes, what to pack for lunch or which backpacks are the best for carrying those heavy textbooks. All great stuff. But Juvenile Hall Design is about inspirational décor for kid’s rooms. I published a previous post about inspiring your genius scientific introvert. But now I’m bringing it close to home. Now we are going to talk about the artist.
These are a collection of colored pencils from “Felissimo” originally developed for “Social Designer.” There are 500 in the collection. And as you can see, the pencils themselves are a piece of art. With custom made holders, they can be arranged on walls in rows, in spirals, even in one continuous row all around the room.
But here is the coolest part. When you order these, you get them in sets of 25, one month at a time for 20 months. Each set is a study in a certain collection of colors and hues. By having one group come at a time, you get to really play with the subtle nuances of each collection before the next arrives.
When I was a kid, I wanted one thing for both my birthday and Christmas. Art supplies! Art supplies Art supplies. Over and over and over. And believe me when I tell you, not one pencil shaving or tube of paint remained by the time my next gift came.
Clothes…yuck. Dolls…NO. Books, if they were about art, sure. But this would have been an absolute dream. I’m not sure if I have ever come across a more inspirational scene for a young artist than this display.
If I had this as a kid I would have stared at these colors every night as I went to sleep just thinking about what I could draw the next day.
I know it seems like I’m laying it on thick here. But I mean every word. This is NOT a sponsored post. This is what a child artist thinks heaven is like. Also each color has it’s own groovy name like Lemon Curd, Hint of Sun and Limelight.
Each set comes to about $15. So over the 20 months you are looking at about $300. $300 for almost 2 years of joy.
And for the socially conscious, both Felissimo and Social Designer carry an extremely high standard of social awareness and philanthropic goals. I encourage you to read up on both. Those are important details to consider nowadays.
I do believe these are being produced for a limited time. So if you are thinking about this as a holiday gift, jump on it now. Your little artist will NOT be disappointed.
