Right from Myriad’s early days back in the late 1990s Stockmar have been a key supplier with their excellent block crayons and watercolours.
Stockmar products are based on the principles of Steiner Waldorf education. Stockmar paints, Stockmar crayons and Stockmar modelling materials are deliberately designed to appeal to the child’s senses. In our technological world, ‘virtual reality’ often replaces genuine experience. Stockmar products are aimed at providing genuine artistic experience which develop and enhance the senses.
Stockmar products are known for their quality all over the world. Stockmar are very particular about the raw materials used in their products and at all times look to minimise any environmental impact.
Myriad stocks a wide range of Stockmar products, including Stockmar Crayons, Stockmar Watercolour Paints, Stockmar Modelling wax, and Stockmar Decorating Wax. They are all easy to use and are suitable in both home and classroom settings.
Basic experiences like feeling, grasping and shaping act on the child’s brain and have a positive effect on the sensory motor development. In today’s world such a stimulus is more important than ever before. Only when children are able to register the effect of the external world on their senses can they take their stand in the world with confidence. There is a circular movement from experience of self to experience of the wider environment.
In order for the senses to be holistically addressed and stimulated, the materials need to be of a quality that is not just statistically measurable, but is also subjectively perceptible from an experiential, ‘feeling’ level. The packaging, colour, scent, shape, properties, ease of handling and artistic possibilities all contribute to a total aesthetic, sense-imbued experience. It is this enhanced, holistic quality that Stockmar products aspire towards.
