“The process of creating art is a powerful developmental tool for children” ClementineArt
Lily and I received a set of Clementine Paints. Just in time for school.
I love working on art projects with Lily, and it’s sort of a nightly ritual for us. She sits at the kitchen table while I make dinner and works on an art project. Whether it’s a glue project, or glitter, clay , printmaking, or paper mache …there is always some sort of art going on in the kitchen while I attempt to cook.
So how thrilled was I when I received a package full of PAINTS!!! I love paints. We have a whole room dedicated to our art supplies! inks and paints and papers and stamps and glue and glitter and carving tools and screens for screen-printing…I could go on. It’s making me giddy telling you about my art stuff!
So Clementine Art is pretty great..for many reasons…the biggest being the colors are vibrant and take very nicely to various surfaces.
Here’s a bit of info about these art products:
About Clementine Art:
Clementine Art was founded in 2008 by Diana Mercer, a former teacher with over 20 years of experience in the field of education, arts education, and child development. Diana created Clementine Art to encourage open-ended art explorations for children. The process of creating art is a powerful developmental tool for children, and Clementine Art products encourage children to dream, imagine, experiment, create, problem-solve, and above all, express themselves. Explains Diana: “Real art is about creating. Early childhood educators know that the process of creating art is just as important to a child’s development as the outcome. I wanted to create products that not only engaged children in an open-ended creative process,but that could also become an everyday part of a healthy and creative lifestyle.”
Clementine Art is professional quality, naturally non-toxic art supplies for children using only the purest ingredients. Clementine Art uses ingredients from the earth and the products are colored with vegetable, plant and mineral pigments instead of artificial dyes, providing an innovative solution to chemically laden, artificially colored art supplies.
