Choose art brushes by style
Art paint brushes come in a variety of styles that differ depending on the type of painting. The most common are round, flat, and filbert brushes. Round and round-pointed tips are ideal for projects that involve fine lines like sketching, outlining, and filling in small spaces. You can also use these for creating thick and thin lines by applying different amounts of pressure with each stroke. Flat brushes are square with long hairs, and artists and crafters use them for filling large areas, making broad brush strokes, edging, and applying varnish. A filbert head is oval, has medium-length hairs, and has one flat side for rounding and blending. In addition, consider purchasing a large paper roll and trying foam tip brushes with students to paint using contrasting textures.
Different types of bristles
The different materials that make up art brushes include natural, synthetic, and a mix of the two. For water coloring, natural hair ones are more soluble, meaning they can hold more water than synthetic. To find a medium between price and quality for water coloring activities, the hybrid natural and artificial is a good choice. Brushes with natural bristles commonly come from camel, ox, and goat.

Use different color handles for color learning and organization
Classrooms, summer programs, and daycare centers often pick art paint brushes with varying color handles. Teachers can help young students work on knowing their colors with a rainbow selection of brush handles. These are available in multicolor packages and are also helpful for organizing painting supplies. Another positive characteristic of these children's art tools is the handles' sizes, which fit into their smaller hands easily to help them learn better control of the brush."
