“MY KIDS LOVE ART TEACHER AMY!”


My kids have been attending Amy Vail's art class since they were 4 years old - they thoroughly enjoy her lessons from start to finish! They get so much out of the hour they spend with her and sometimes they don't want to leave!

MY FAVORITE ART SUPPLIES!  WANT TO KNOW WHAT I USE?


Are you looking to get more paints or a nice set of colored pencils for your little artist? Here are some links to  my favorite websites where you can purchase quality supplies at reasonable prices. 

PLEASE DO NOT BUY THOSE $30 ART SETS IN WOOD BOXES!! THEY ARE VERY LOW QUALITY FROM CHINA!! You are better off buying the items below from Amazon if you want a nice gift of art QUALITY art supplies.


TRY THESE SITES AS WELL : www.dickblick.com  I buy most things on Blick

(They merged with Utrecht Art supplies).

www.walmart.com Walmart also has good prices on the watercolor paper.


  • I try not to buy things on Amazon all the time- just once in awhile because they are taking over and our stores are closing! But these items you can't find at these prices anywhere else. 


  • This is thePrang watercolor set we use (8 oval count) , but this set has 8 more colors like light blue, tan and magenta. 

  • These Prismacolor colored pencils are the BEST pencils on the market! If your child loves to color with colored pencils I would definiitely get a set of these for $20 for 36 pencils. They are so creamy, you  really see the difference.

  • This is the watercolor paper I use,  30 sheets of Canson XL watercolor paper 9x12 for $6-7.

          it is a great pad of watercolor paper. 140lb paper, heavy paper, excellent                     quality. I have used this for 10 years and I do my own painting on it. Try the               11x14  size for bigger paintings!


  • I love the Pentel Oil Pastels. This set has 48 colors, we have 16 on our set.If you're little artist loves pastels, he or she will get really excited about using this many pastel colors!   $15 for 48 pastels

  • All of the supplies below are ARTIST quality art supplies at REASONABLE prices when I posted them.
