    What type of paper do you use when the students paint with tempera on the easel?

    I have some newsprint and it is fine for daily painting, but it is too thin for the art gallery. I ordered something else and it is too slippery. When I visit the art supply store, there are so many choices! Help?

    The slippery paper is for fingerpainting. Try the white sulphite.

    Thank you both! This is my 2nd year in pre-k (8th year teaching), but my first time ordering.

    DSS is having a great sale on the white sulphite (which really confused me at the art store because it was in a pad and the cover stated it was for pencils, chalk, and other DRY medium). I just ordered a pack of 500 for the same price that I would have paid for only 50 sheets at the store.

    Glad to know I have some large fingerpainting paper too!
