Ara (Acrylics Rietveld Academy) is an acrylic developed at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. The high pigmentation delivers pure colours posessing extraordinary tinting strength. These colours are made of 100% acrylic emulsion combined with lightfast pigments, formulated to give a smooth brushable colour with intensity and brilliance. The strong adhesion of an acrylic binder makes these colours suitable for many applications and surfaces.
Ara acrylics are produced in the paint factory of Old Holland Classic Colours. The paint is made according to Old Holland’s own recipe in order to ensure the highest quality possible.
A very good quality range of mid-priced acrylic, ideal for serious artists needing to cover large canvases. The metallic colours are particularly popular.
