My Art Supply Favorites

Are you looking for a good selection of art supplies for your kids?

Maybe as a Birthday or Christmas gift?

 

I would like to introduce you to my favorite art supplies for my students.

A lot of different retail stores carry a wide variety of affordable art supplies for school time, after-school time, play time, rainy day activities, and vacation fun.

If you do not have access to those art supplies, don't worry, just use what you have and add to your collection as your child's interest develops. For example, you do not have to buy any tempera cakes, your child can use their watercolors for all the projects we do.​

If you do not have access to those art supplies right away, don't worry, just use what you have and add to your collection as your child's interest develop.
