What is the best watercolor paint?

We believe in the importance of using quality materials in one’s creative practice, no matter your skill level. We are thoughtful about sourcing materials, and never want to sacrifice on quality. 

We chose the Van Gogh watercolors because with vibrant and luminous colors and brilliant mixability, these are the perfect choice for creatives of all levels, from beginners to professionals. They are an excellent starting point for people who are new to watercolors and wish to experiment with good quality paints before investing in artist-grade paints. You will find that the Van Gogh watercolors are highly saturated and long lasting, and your artwork will reflect the quality of the paints, no matter what you create.

The Perfect Travel Companion

Bet you didn’t know that every Art Life Practice Watercolor Kit is also a travel watercolor set. All the components to take your practice on the road are here, from the perfectly compact pouch to the just-right papers to the mini watercolor paint set. All you have to do is pick a destination and go, this travel paint kit will take care of the rest.

Art Life Practice watercolor tips

1. Use the ultra-fine marker to draw over dry watercolor to create unique textures and layers.

2. Watercolor paints are extra blendable and more forgiving than tube paints, so go ahead and experiment to your heart’s content.

3. We include three round-tip brushes varying in size, giving you options for your brushstrokes.

4. When it comes to learning how to use watercolor paint, not just any paper will do. The best watercolor paper has the perfect combination of texture and absorbance to make the most of these paints’ transparent, buildable nature.

These kits are the best gifts for friends!

loved the collage kit

My grandkids (twins, boy and girl are 6 and their sister is 10) all loved the collage kit. They were all very creative with totally different themes and loved trading scraps of the collage to finish their own work. Everything they needed to create a collage was there for them and plenty left over to do more and more.

Cannot say enough good things

Cannot say enough good things about these amazing kits! They are wonderful for both kids and adults.
I love that the boxes include everything from materials, easy to follow instructions, and history on the origin of the art form. They are great for gifts! I ended up buying one for myself too!
