I recommend using watercolor in tubes for some of the projects we will be doing in the class. There is a huge difference in quality between the water-color sets you see in the kid's art aisle at Target and the tube sets you can buy at art supply stores. It is amazing what a difference a little nicer paint makes in the overall appearance of a piece of art. My kids use this set that I bought at Michaels. Can you tell that I spend a lot of time at Michaels? Watercolor is a perfect medium for children because it is not mixed with toxins and it cleans nicely off of hands and brushes. I paid about $6 for our set of Reeve's watercolors, it is well worth spending a few extra dollars.
