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.

We love combining a campout with an art session, but we know it can be easy to forget essential items, especially if you’re on a spur-of-the-moment adventure! It’s overnight adventure season, so it’s time to bring back our Overnight Art Adventure Checklist, specially designed for overnight art trips. Here are some pictures from a recent family trip Maria took to Texas, which included many overnights and lots of art and adventure!⁠
