* Painting Class Supplies *

Grumbacher Academy Acrylics brand for fine art is what I recommend for beginners. I recommend and use Grumbacher now instead of Liquitex Basics because Grumbacher Acrylics have more pigment  and less water in them. Therefore, the Grumbacher colors are more vivid when dry than Liquitex colors.
