Since I love teaching watercolor pencil, it may be the best choice for this type of class. The supplies are cheaper with introductory sets and paper isn't such a critical issue. Finally get a chance to use Strathmore 400 for something other than cleaning brushes. I've never liked it as a watercolor paper, but the heavy sizing is actually quite nice for watercolor pencil. Imagine that.
