Watercolor & Sketching Toolkits

Our versatile and rugged kits include all you need to start your sketching adventure. Available in two sizes and multiple colors.

A Pocket Art Toolkit in grey with blue trim lays open with a sketchbook showing a watercolor painting of a coastal scene. A Pocket Palette filled with colorful watercolor pans sits on top.

Compact Watercolor Palettes & Pans

Our pocket-sized watercolor palettes feature a high-quality mixing surface and a magnetic base to mix-and-match an array of stainless steel refillable watercolor pans.

Three sizes of watercolor palettes: the Demi Palette, the Folio Palette, and the Pocket Palette, all with assorted pans with watercolors of various colors, and watercolor pans scattered in the foreground.

Working with local artist and educator Che Lopez (@artofche), we dreamed up an emerald green Sketcher Fest Palette with engraving art inspired by the shoreline of Puget Sound. From Edmonds looking west, you can see the Olympic Mountains, the choppy waves of the Sound, and birds in flight.⁠

In June, thirty people gathered next to Cascade Lake in Moran State Park on Orcas Island, Washington State. They stood beneath the cedars in the dappled evening sunlight, having come together to deepen their connection to nature in a workshop led by Robin Lee Carlson (@anthropocenesketchbook) and hosted by the Orcas Island Library (@orcasislandlibrary) and Friends of the San Juans (@friendsofthesanjuans).⁠

A few weeks ago, our friend Robin Lee Carlson (@anthropocenesketchbook) stopped by to say “Hi!” and sketch by the water! Visit our blog to read “Sketching with Robin” and see photos of our time together. Robin shared a couple key sketching tips with the group, and we thought it would be fun to share with you all:.⁠

We had a great morning with Urban Sketchers and so many friendly locals at the Port Townsend Farmer’s Market last weekend—Maria and Satria repped Art Toolkit with a little demo table! Sketching at the market is one of our favorite locations because there are endless subjects, from buildings to market-goers and produce to artisan booths. It always feels good to connect with our community.⁠

Yesterday, we shared about Ambassador Sophia Trinh’s (@philosophiatrinh) weekend getaway trip to California with her fiancé. Sophia always notices the little details, and remarked upon how the grapes were “intertwined with roses, creating a beautiful scene.” She sketched amongst the roses and even snapped a few photos amid the vines!⁠
