Welcome to dickblick
Grumbacher Academy has been the best-selling brand of watercolors in the United States for years. Their palette of 60 colors features traditional ingredients, time-tested formulas, careful manufacturing, and attention to quality.
Academy offers extravagant color at an affordable price. Grumbacher uses only the finest pigments, finely ground and evenly dispersed for producing the vibrant washes and subtle gradations that make watercolor so appealing.
Academy is of such quality that it is often used by professionals. Academy colors that have dried on the palette are easily resoluble with water. This cuts down on waste, and allows artists to make their own semi-moist colors for outdoor painting.
Available in 7.5 ml tubes.

Grumbacher Academy Watercolors tube paints
from Gulfport, Ms
I ordered these paints in certain colors because these colors were required by my new watercolor class teacher! I would like to have ordered a higher quality professional artist paint, but limited budget! They are serving their purpose for my class and I am new in this medium, so they are good to me!
Always buy Academy
from Houma, La
We use this product in our Summer Art Camp. I have no problem with it, very close to more expensive professional water color. I have been ordering this for years and will continue to do so
from Ranch Cucamonga
Budding artist. Loved the price & the how quickly I received my purchase. Will order again from you. Thank you!!
Good paint for students.

Can be mixed with the professional watercolors to extend and still retain the quality.

Always Happy With Blick!
By Katherine Norrie
from Northfield, Minnesota
I am a high school teacher and I have two sections of Watercolor Painting with 35 students in each section next semester. I recently ordered 70 watercolor sets from Blick and I couldn't be happier with the quality, speed of delivery and customer service. Each of my students purchases a set of WC paints so that they have them wherever they go and MOST of all, they care for their paints and take care of their sets. Thank you again Blick for making my teacher ordering so smooth!

Grumbacher Academy Watercolors are great for my students!
By dorothea's Art Haven
from Lodi, WI
I love to use Grumbacher Academy watercolor tubes for my Beginning Watercolor classes. The quality of the paint is very good, the hues available excellent and the price is great! This product is good for all artists, but especially adult students, who are able to get great watercolor results, at a very competitive cost. This encourages them to explore the medium by adding more colors to their palette and keep on painting after the class.
For my purposes, just as good as Winsor and Newton
from New York, NY
They work great for my multi-media work. Not super expensive and decent quality.

good for this professional!
from plymouth, michigan
i may be a professional artist but grumbacher paints are the best for me. i've used other paints and found that they were ok, but not always for the price. unfortunately, the color chart doesn't always show a true color. nor does the tube itself. its always good to have an idea of the name of the color you want.
