The Pastel Stencil Kit comes in a heavy-duty, reusable canister, and it includes everything required to create 9 stencil styles and pictures: black, white and blue paper, non-toxic soft chalk pastels in a variety of colors, a pencil, scissors, cotton balls and easy-to-understand instructions with pictures and illustrations. The instructions include two sections, one just for "grown-ups" and another section specifically for children completing the project. The kit also includes explanations of art concepts and vocabulary such as values, shades, stencils, positive and negative shapes. The instructions offer guidelines and suggestions without stifling creativity, imagination or originality. The activity can be done alone or together with friends, which increases the kit's social value.
