Brush Sets and Packs
A great way to get acquainted with a range of brush shapes and sizes is to purchase art paint brush sets and begin experimenting! Blick offers a wide range of artist paint brush sets for use with acrylic paints, oil paints, watercolor paints, and many other types of media, broken down into “student” and “studio” categories for ease of comparison and selection.
Student-grade brushes are intended for younger artists or those just starting out, and generally begin at a lower price point. Some of these brushes have larger or more colorful handles (or brush fibers) that can be appealing to children and younger artists, as well as older artists who might have trouble gripping a more slender handle. Blick offers a large selection of economical classroom paint brush packs and canisters for art rooms, classrooms, camps, and other large group settings.
Professional brush sets often include brushes with a higher grade of brush hair or synthetic fiber, plus specialty shapes for artists who have more experience or knowledge about how specific brushes work. A good way to shop for artist paint brush sets is to remember the media it will be used for, the type of natural hair or synthetic fiber that is preferred, and the age or skill level of the artist.
Blick has a brush set for everyone! Access our Brush Charts for more information on types of paintbrushes, including brush shapes, fiber types, and measurements.
