I went to the shop on Monday and splurged on art supplies so I have been busy testing things out since then. By no means am I an artist as I have no knowledge about painting or such things but I certainly would like to learn.
There is one obstacle though. If you want to learn about painting or drawing, it costs! I certainly should have taken more advantage of the art club in college with its free supplies for buying things yourself can be terribly expensive. Especially when you buy one thing and then realise that you also need to buy something else.
It is also my fault since my brain has decided it wants to experiment with all sorts of things. Oil paints, acrylic paints, oil-markers and spray painting. All amazing things but all quite pricey. In terms of what to actually draw, I’ve been trying out calligraphy and graffiti. It all requires hard work and patience though as practice is vital for calligraphy.
The cost of all these things has shown me why artists tend to be from more privelaged backgrounds. Your child wants to play football, no problem, just buy them a ball and send them to the park. On the other hand, if they want to dabble in art, a whole range of things are needed, as well as research and expert knowledge.
Until Next Time
