Happy Saturday everybody!
I'm super excited to be releasing episode 2 of ARTminute, on schedule!!
If you know me, you know that I'm a bit of a procrastinator and also sort of allergic to schedules so this is a big deal for me.
Can I get an internet high-five from everyone out there who doesn't have a job with regular hours?
Anywho, today's ARTminute is on the subject of art supplies. My mission today is to help you get over some of the overwhelm when it comes to starting your creative journey and I will do that by sharing two truths about art supplies:
1) Lots of people use the lack of artist materials as a reason to never learn art and that's straight-up crazy.
2) Buying supplies doesn't have to break the bank. First, look around and see if you can find what you need in your home then hit up your local dollar store.
If you're following my lessons all you'll need for the time being are an HB pencil, a white eraser, and a pencil sharpener (oh, and some paper but you don't have to buy a sketchbook if you don't want to you can draw on scrap paper that would otherwise end up in the recycling bin). In the video I do mention that you might eventually need pencil crayons as well, which is true, you can definitely find these for just a couple of dollars. I would bet dollars to donuts though that you probably have some tucked away somewhere.
Honestly, though, lots of artists don't use 'artist quality' supplies and they produce amazing work. Jackson Pollack used industrial paint for his famous drip paintings and contemporary artist Jen Stark started making her paper sculptures because all she could afford was a huge stack of cheap construction paper.
Okay lovelies, happy art supply and hunting!
