A strong cotton canvas is a basic tool in any artist’s arsenal. Stretched canvases are a great time-saver, but they can set you back financially, and this is where more affordable multipacks come in. Those that are pre-primed with gesso are especially handy, as they are ready to use right out of the pack, and most are suitable for both acrylic and oil paints. (Of course, you can always add a few more coats if you so desire.) Multipacks tend to contain small, lightweight canvases, making them particularly well suited for paint parties, plein air painting, and classroom activities. They’re also good to have on hand for experiments and studies. Ahead, find the best multipacks with the ARTnews stamp of approval.
