Faber-Castell to donate gift bag of art supplies

Last week we announced the first Symposium partnership, a collaboration with fine art paper manufacturer Canson, which will donate a set of sketchbooks and artpads to participants.

Today, we are excited to announce another Symposium partnership with Faber-Castell, the world-renowned pen and art supplies manufacturer.

Faber-Castell will offer a gift bag to each Symposium participant that will include samples of PITT artist brush pens, PITT artist pen superfine nib, Castell 9000 pencil, kneaded eraser, polychromos color pencil and other supplies.

Faber-Castell was founded more than 240 years ago in Germany as a pencil manufacturer. Today, its brand is known around the world for its high quality, professional art supplies, fine writing instruments and children’s products.

We are really excited about this collaboration with Faber-Castell and hope it will continue to develop in the future as we keep sketching our way around the world!
