We hae ben using tha Winsor And Newton stuff over here (UK) since the
Summer with our year 12 and 13s (age 16/17/18).

They are superb!! Very good quality colour, with lovely body and feel,
yet they really are water mixable, which in a classroom situation where
most students are using water based acrylics etc is really convenient.
Over here W&N give schools between 35% and 40% discount so that these
tubes are realy good value, apart from them being such oncentrated
colour. They (unbelievably) feel like Oil colour and dry (slowly) like
them too. I thoroughly recomend them
