Art Students Materials List
Art materials influence how artists make their work and how viewers perceive it
For everything we do in art, we need the right tools. If we use any paper other than it was designed for, or if the canvas or brushes we use are the wrong kind, the painting won’t turn out as well as it could.
The materials listed here are for the introduction lessons. To keep the cost down for art materials before you have settled into a specific medium, I am recommending minimum supplies without jeopardising decent results. For instance, Vermilion Red is a more cost-effective option than Cadmium Red when purchasing oil paints. It is similar enough to produce a comparable result, although the Cadmium Red is much brighter. Once you know your direction, you can add Cadmium Red to your collection of oil paints, as it has a much higher in pigments and chroma content.
