I would like to know where and which kind of watercolor brushes were being offered for the children. Thank you for sharing!

Hi, Rising Star Chinese School -
As I think this collection of photos illustrate, we use a range of brushes with even the youngest artists so that they have a sense of the affordances of each. Providing that variety - and using the highest quality materials we can afford - supports thoughtful, intentional engagement.
Did I answer your question? What have been your experiences with young children and watercolor brushes?
