  • Watercolor Pencils we recommend: Arteza 72 Color Watercolor Pencils (please have a wide variety of watercolor pencils due to shading and color mixing). These are watercolor pencils and not regular colored pencils. These pencils blend with water. 
  • Black liner pens that don't bleed. We recommend these: Black Paint Pens
  • Watercolor paper: these allow the colors to blend and they're thick enough to not rip through. Good paper will allow your kids to really enjoy watercolors. Watercolor Paper 140lb weight
  • Brushes. You can use regular paint brushes but should include detail brushes, round brushes and one flat brush. We recommend water brushes for easy travel and easy water release: Brush Set for Watercolor
