Art Moki product selections provide affordable quality materials that are designed to broaden creative choice. For example, our watercolor set has a limited palette with cool and warms of each color to better teach color mixing. The color pencil set we selected enables shading through layering and controlling the pressure applied, rather than a softer colored pencil that blends by smudging, replicating the experience of soft chalk pastels. Paper type and quality are also instrumental to a project’s success.
