Art supplies can be pretty pricey, but there are lots of great alternatives out there that make things a little easier on the pocket book. Knowing when it is worth it to use the high dollar supplies, and when a cheap alternative will work just fine is also a helpful way to cut costs in art making. Most of us already have things around the house that we can use use.
I held two workshops over the weekend at Tessera Fine Art Gallery in Wichita to address these cost cutting topics while creating a mixed media on the cheap project on a pine board.
See the cool fly swatter “stencil”?
I think they all turned out pretty great!
Next workshop at the gallery is June 11, Painting With Paper… It’s gonna be fun!
