A2 Students Acrylics

A2 Students Acrylics A2® Art Students Acrylics are specially designed for the needs of students, beginners or hobby painters without the expense of buying artists colours. A2 acrylics are  especially useful during the earlier stages when they are learning how to handle paint. A good student’s paint needs to be:

  • As strongly pigmented as an artist’s quality paint.
  • The same in its consistency and handling as an artist’s quality paint.

A2 students acrylics meet this definition very effectively and are competitively priced because they use student quality pigments.  Chroma’s A2 Art Students’ Acrylics are perfectly suited to be used with the Atelier® Range of Painting Mediums & Varnishes.  The choice of colours in a range like this is important. The 20 colours in the A2 range are what we believe to be the “basics” which need to be used and understood before exploring more specialised and extended artists ranges such as Atelier, Golden or Liquitex.  The 20 colours in the A2 range have been carefully matched to colours in the Atelier Professional Artists’ Quality range, so that experience in colour mixing gained by learning with A2 is not lost.  Jim Cobb, Managing Director, the Chroma Group.
