Ara Acrylics

[quote float=”right”]Ara acrylics is developed at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.[/quote]Ara (Acrylics Rietveld Academy) is an acrylic developed at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Our paint is made by artists, for artists. That’s why we know exactly what the needs and wishes of our users are. This results in an acrylic with the highest pigmentation that delivers pure colours posessing extraordinary tinting strength. Furthermore our acrylics are packaged in easy-sealable paint pots. The pots allow you to work directly from the pot on the canvas.


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.

Special colours

Besides the standard colours Ara has a wide range of special colours such as metallics, pearl and neon colours. You can find all our colours on our colour chart.
