Ordering and opening art supplies is kind of like Christmas. It is very fun and exciting! However the ordering part can be pretty tricky. Staying on budget is very important, but I want to get everything I need and stretch my money as far as it can go.
I'm getting ready to order my supplies next year in a few weeks. Which brands do you reccommend? Or which ones should I stay away from? Do I go cheap or spend a few extra dollars on something better? I definitely want to get my money's worth but don't want to spend it all on materials that just aren't that great.
Crayola? School Smart? Dick Blick?
Paint. Paint Brushes. Colored Pencils. Oil Pastels. Paper. Glazes. The list goes on and on....
With so many brands to choose from, it is hard to keep them all straight and know which one will be best.
Does anybody have suggestions on what to order?
