We believe children should have high-quality art supplies while exploring different art genres and mediums. This provides an authentic experience while learning and discovering the basic foundations and beyond. This collection of high-quality pencils provides a range of hardness levels for a variety of drawing, sketching, shading and handwriting.

These pencils' quality lies in the unvarying grades of hardness and high breaking strength. They are perfect for the high demands of graphic design and architecture, as well as the higher pressure placed on pencils by children.  

The leads in this pencil set come in a range of the following grades: 4H 3H 2H H F HB B 2B 3B 4B 5B 6B. The hard leads are H grade and are used for precision drawing like geometrical form drawing. The higher the number, the harder the lead.

Normal writing pencils are the HB grade.

The soft leads are B grade and are ideal for drawing, shading and black and white sketching. B and 2B can also be used for writing. The higher the number with the B, the softer and darker the lead.

NOTE: In a Waldorf curriculum, these tend to be used in the 6th grade and above, though some may start as low as 4th grade and move up.
