Yarka watercolor pan sets can be used in an art camp, an art class, or for your own private use. I started out using tube watercolor paints and later was introduced to Yarka watercolor pan sets. It is made in Russia and is extremely affordable even though it is a professional grade watercolor paint.
Once I started using these extremely vibrant paints I have used hardly any other watercolors. They are very transportable. They stay moist. You only have to tip your wet watercolor brush into the paint and is is instantly ready to use. If you don't like to drag a lot of equipment with you to an art camp, workshop or class it is ideal to use.
You have your choice of several different pan sets. You can buy the extended colors and those that are very transparent. If you love watercolors I can guarantee you will love these. I haven't been able to find them in art stores other than online. Cheap Joe's Art Supplies, Dick Blick, Jerry's, ASW, are the predominant online art supply stores. I compare the prices and go with the one who offers the best deals.
