Question for those of you teaching middle school art or acrylic painting...what brand of paint do you buy thats inexpensive? I'm basically starting from the ground up and am willing to invest in a bulk supply, but not willing to over spend. Best brand, best vendor, best quality...any information you can give!

    Cheapest and good enough- NASCO or BLICK, by the pint-- Any bigger is awkward to manage. They also sell sets of 6 or 12 bottles which are really well priced. Here is the link for NASCO, 12 pints for $52,
    GOLD acrylic paint is a hit with kids.
    Brushes are another story. Hard to pick them out without seeing and feeling them. I've bought alot of bad brushes.

    I second Nasco! They're local to me... so we get most of our stuff from them. They rock!
