I agree with you. It's almost as if the color isn't in the center of the
wood so often they only sharpen on one side. I use Prang also and they are
better but I often just have to make do with the Crayola.

Subject: [teacherartexchange] colored pencils




Does anyone have a problem with Crayola colored pencils? I am soooooo
frustrated with them. We have pencil tips all over the art room floor. The
tips break so easily, it seems like the colored core isn't strong enough.
We use an electric pencil sharpener, and the new Prismacolor sharpeners
(which work fine on quality pencils). For classroom use the Crayola

has a rich color that goes on smoothly, but the breakage makes us crazy. I
called the company...they sent new ones, at no charge, that break too!! Any
comments or suggestions for other brands would be greatly appreciated.
