When working with students, my goal is to introduce them to art, allow them to discover new media (materials) and techniques, and help expand their creativity, but my highest hope is for them to enjoy the process.
To capture this, I tend to use a mix of art supplies that I find quality, but also affordable for young artists. On each lesson + project page, I list "supplies needed" to complete the project. Below are the supplies I use in the videos, with my own kids, as well as with the students in my art class. These are art supplies I suggest, not because I've tried every available product on the market or claim to know the best products, but because I've used them for years and have found them to be a success with myself and the kids.
