Amazon Prime Day, the online marketplace’s biggest sale event of the year, starts today at 12 am Pacific Daylight Time and ends at 11:59 pm PDT on June 22. More than two million deals in 20 countries are up for grabs, but to take advantage of them, you have to be an Amazon Prime subscriber.

Amazon Prime costs $12.99 a month or $119 a year. Its benefits include faster shipping on Amazon orders, discounts at Whole Foods, and access to Amazon’s streaming entertainment. You can also pick up a free 30-day trial of Prime here.

To help you navigate the sea of goods, we’ll be tracking deals on tools for artists, teachers, photographers, and multimedia content creators. Below you’ll find our picks of discounted art supplies, from watercolor pencils to cameras; we’ll be updating this list as deals come and go, so check back in often. A word of advice: Move fast, especially on the Lightning Deals, as many of these items will sell out quickly. NOTE THAT ALL TIMES ARE PACIFIC DAYLIGHT TIME.

***NEW*** 42% off Olympus MFT mirrorless camera
A travel-style, interchangeable-lens camera, the Olympus Micro Four Thirds (MFT) mirrorless camera is based around a 20-megapixel Live MOS MFT-sized sensor. This might be a drawback for some, but many photographers will appreciate the fact that with a system with a smaller image sensor, they can buy smaller-sized telephoto zoom lenses. And this camera is packed with features, including a 5-axis in-body image-stabilization system (with between 5.5 to 6.5 stops of compensation), the ability to shoot 30 frames per second in sequential shooting modes and it even has some really intriguing shooting modes, like live-composite and focus-stacking modes. But what’s best is the included 14-150 mm zoom lens, which has the equivalent field of view of a 28-300mm lens on a 35mm or full-frame camera.
