Welcome to dickblick
From the same company that makes Arches, this fine quality, warm white paper provides excellent color stability, color representation, and surface strength. A Cold Press paper, it is designed for art students and serious amateurs who are not ready for the expense of a 100% cotton professional paper such as Arches.
Use it for watercolor, acrylic, and gouache. It's also very good for pencil drawing. Canson Watercolor Paper's medium weight of 90 lb (185 gsm) is similar to a heavier drawing paper. Acid free, buffered, and resistant to mildew.

Comments about Canson Watercolor Paper Packs:
...by this paper's low cost and modest weight! It is a fantastic product.I've been searching for large sheets of paper that I can buy in bulk without bankrupting myself, which has been nearly an impossible feat. For 50 sheets or more, even mid-range paper can get cost prohibitive, and newsprint is too flimsy, too ugly, and rarely acid-free.I purchased the Canson paper pack in 24¼ X 36, and and I'm thrilled to say, my search is over! Its value and quality are incredible for the price. Not to mention, pre-cut w/c paper at this size, by any brand, are rare. (I don't like dealing with rolls, which are unwieldy and have to be flattened out.)Since receiving it, I've thrown a lot at this paper -- dry and wet media (charcoal, pastels, watercolor, acrylic, and a range of inks), separately and combined in multiple layers -- and it's held up extremely well. Great lifting with w/c; takes vigorous erasing like a champ; and India ink doesn't bleed, and neither does the more "watery" calligraphy ink. Best of all, unlike many student papers and even some pricey rag papers, it doesn't pill--at least, not with synthetic and watercolor brushes.There is SOME buckling when I lay down a heavy wash, but the effect is pretty mild for such a lightweight paper, and especially considering I don't even tape it down! (Because of the large size, I've just held each sheet in place with 4-6 binder clips.) In short, this is a great product. I can experiment freely without worrying about costly mistakes. Hopefully, I'll get better and finally put my collection of premium papers to use. (I check on them once in a while, to caress and appreciate before putting them back.)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great for Elementary Art
By Art Teacher
This paper worked very well for my elementary art classes. It has produced some of the best results when using salt with watercolor. This is the second time I purchased it and I will buy it again.
Amazing Student Paper
This paper doesn't warp even if when young students use way too much water!
This watercolor paper is high quality without the high price. Student grade paper is perfect for my work with primary aged chidlren, but I've also used it in my own artistic projects. It's thick and loves watercolor paint. What more could you want? A good price? Well, you have that too.I highly recommend this product!
Great people to deal with.

I was purchasing materials for summer camp and needed watercolor paper. This worked beautifully. I've used the 9X12 and 12x18--they are both great. They have a nice thickness and feel.
Great price -- terrific paper!

Great for learning on quality paper
from Geneva, IL
When learning to use watercolor you have to use good paper or you don't get the results you need to see to really learn how to use the paints. This paper is great for creative warm ups, beginners, technique practice without destroying your paper budget.

Good for the price
from Orlando, Fl
This paper is not the very best, but is just good enough for student work. I would buy a higher quality paper for my art pieces.
