I would suggest the Scribus Basic set.

It is a small set and manageable for beginners. You can add a color to
it without 'losing' it in the list of colors.

If there are too many, as in X11, then it is a pain in the butt when
saying "Select this color, then select that color" The scrolling to
make the selection is a distraction to the lesson/tutorial
