Choosing school art supplies: Art markers are a fun, multi purpose school art supply. Broad tip markers for coloring are great for kids of all ages. Brush pens, calligraphy pens, fine tip markers and conical tip markers for more detailed marker drawings and calligraphy for your older student or artist. There are even special face paint markers for those mischievous kids who think that drawing on their face is much more fun than using paper. Washable markers are a must have for little kids who tend to draw on everything they see, including their own and other people's clothes. Try a marker set and see what you need - then invest and watch creativity soar.
