Never too early to introduce kids to quality Art materials

I am strong believer that artistic development can be encouraged and nurtured by allowing children to explore their innate artistic talents with artist grade supplies that typically outperform children's art supplies with more saturated pigment-rich colors and smoother feel on the drawing paper support. Naturally close supervision and guidance are required, and it would probably be best to stick to non-toxic choices.
Introducing Mateo to some of the best crayons in the market: Caran D'Ache Neocolor II watercolor crayons.
Checking out some of my doodle pages and quick test of a couple of Maxon Comic screen tone symbols.
At one year old Mateo can hold the Sakura Pigma Sensei drawing pen, but probably needs to develop his motor skills a tad further for a few more months before tackling actual drawing activities.
Nicole and Camila enjoying some coloring activities with a set of Faber Castell Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils.
Doodling some favorite subjects with a Sakura Pigma Sensei pen.
I might be biased, but I do not think my own sketching symbols for princess and flowers at 5 years old were as recognizable as the current work of Nicole.
