Although it is simple to find art markers, there are enough
different types of them to make it difficult to understand which kind
of marker is best to use.
Some of the choices in the type of art marker you use include:
• Washable or not washable – Before giving
art markers to children, it is important to make sure that the markers
specifically say that they are washable. Most professional artists,
however, choose to use non-washable markers. They tend to be a little
more bright and vibrant.
• Tip sizes differ – Most makers of art
markers create the markers in different sizes. For example, some of
the markers have wide tips, while others have thin tips. Some of the
most diverse markers have dual tips that allow you to make either broad
or thin lines. The lines made depend on the position on which you are
holding the marker.
• Know the difference between art markers and others
– All markers are not created equally. Although some markers are
designed specifically to be used for drawing and creating art, there
are others that are designed to be used on dry erase boards. Do not
mix the two. It can be a pain to try to remove marks from art markers
on a dry erase board.
