What is a smush crayon? It’s what designer Todd Oldham once accidentally turned a box of crayons into by leaving them in a hot car all day. That beautiful, colorful mess bears the colors of famous artworks from MoMA’s collection in each of these Smush Crayons.
The colors been distilled down to a few hues these crayons, making the artworks more relatable and allowing users to engage with it differently. You kids will enjoy creating their own speckled masterpieces with it. Choose from Making with MoMA Smush Crayons, each sold separately, based on the following artworks: Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night, Claude Monet’s Water Lilies and Alma Thomas’ bold abstract painting Untitled. Ages 3+.
