‘To be an artist is to believe in life,’ Henry Moore
Whether you are gathering art supplies for a classroom or finding the perfect tool to complete your masterpiece, we at Artworx are here to help you explore your creativity and believe in the artistry of life and experience. To that end, we are happy to provide for you an incredible selection of the top art supplies available throughout Australia. In particular, we are especially excited to show you our supply of Faber-Castell coloured pencils.
Faber-Castell is one of the world’s oldest and largest manufacturers of wood-cased pencils and in fact the company is over 225 years old.
When you are adding anything Faber to your art supplies you know you have quality. It is however a really difficult brand to work out if you are not familiar with the art and craft market.
Basically there are three tiers in the Faber brand and they are recognized by colour. You have the GREEN tier, which is designed for advanced and professional artists this is also known as the Art and Graphic range as it includes graphite, markers, pastels and pens. In regards to coloured pencils Polychromos colouring pencils and Albrecht Durer watercolour pencils both sit under the green branding. With these pencils being artist quality every pencil is highly pigmented and both pencil ranges are based on the same colour numbering system. Which gives them consistent results when working with mixed techniques such as water-soluble and permanent pencils.
BLUE label; also known as the Creative Studio. This is designed for student and intermediate artists in mind. It is a step up from the kids’ pencils and a step down from the Art and Graphic series. In this range you will find coloured pencils, graphite pencils, watercolour pencils, pastels and other creative sets.
RED range; remember all Faber products are quality art supplies but this level of materials is called Playing and Learning. Everything that has red packaging is designed for kids and sits in the lower price bracket. Coloured pencils, crayons, glitter glue, pastels, paints and scissors can all be found in this range and we better not forget markers, the ever so popular connector pens.
Creating is fun for all levels of ages and Faber-Castell products as a company has definitely embraced this. When checking out with your art materials don’t forget about our artist VIP membership it is easy to join, you will receive unbeatable prices on all art materials and be kept up to date with art classes and workshops. We look forward to working with you and helping you to complete your next creative endeavor.
