Kids' and Classroom Markers
For making marks on paper, coloring books, windows, posters, decorations, scrapbooks, and other surfaces, Blick is your go-to marker store. Kids (and the adults who make art with them) love markers, and there are always new marker varieties being developed for adding details and fun accents to all kinds of projects.
Choose glitter, neon, fluorescent, scented, metallic, and double-ended markers for kids, plus washable markers that make cleanup easy for their teachers and parents. Many varieties of kids’ marker feature a long cap-off time so they won’t dry out as quickly when left uncapped, or vented caps that inhibit choking. Choose crayons and chalk markers for window and mirror art.
For older students and young artists, brush pens and markers, watercolor markers, blending markers, and other types of markers are great for drawing, manga, illustration, writing, calligraphy, hand-lettering, and scrapbooks. For classrooms, camps, parties, rainy day activities, or any other setting, Blick has the markers for making art time fun.
Washable Markers use a more limited selection of inks than other water-based markers, using dyes that are less staining and are more easily removed from fabrics and skin. This makes them ideal for school use. However, because the dye selection is so limited, the colors tend to be both less lightfast and less vivid.
Water-Based Markers use water-soluble inks. They are generally non-toxic, but not necessarily washable. Read instructions carefully. If you must have a washable marker, select one that specifically features washability.
