My daughter is an art student and this pad was a gift. She loves to paint and draw and this paper is fantastic. It is thick and holds up well with all of the paint.

My nephew loves this sketch book for its size and the versatility of mediums! It was delivered in a good timing, too.
Canson Watercolor Pads
By Art Cookie
from Frisco, TX
I use Canson Watercolor Pads for student work in watercolor, tempera and acrylic. The paper holds up with limited buckling. Color is luminous and bright for watercolor and the paper stands up to heavy erasing and reworking. There are 30 sheets to a taped pad and the variety of sizes makes this paper not only easy to use but a good buy.
Very impressive product and super turn-around time
from North Bay, Ontario Canada
Just what I ordered
By Mikey J
from Washington, DC
By Club Express
from Burlington, NC
These are just the perfect sketchbook for my students to plan their art and sample new techniques with a variety of media. The size and price were perfect for my studio!
Wise purchase made!
I'm really liking using this paper. It stands up well with use of lots of water and once stretched it makes for an excellent tight surface to paint on. Much like stretched canvas after priming.- I'm using to learn and explore watercolor paints and techniques and getting the results I want!- I also use it to "paint" with my 7 and 3 year old grandkids, priceless! I want them to get use to using real artist materials.
