Essential Art Supplies For Your Homeschool

Essential Art Supplies For Your Homeschool from Standard Deviants Accelerate
I am very aware that many of us are not artistic ourselves and may have trouble getting our heads around having art in our homeschool. {Note that I am one of those people.} This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strive to include art in your homeschool and with that provide quality art supplies for your homeschool.

While the temptation is to buy the cheap stuff, this can burn you in the end with crayons that break and don’t give good color, glue that doesn’t stick properly, markers that run out too quickly, etc. So when purchasing art supplies take a look around and be sure to buy something with a little more quality than with the cheaper price tag.

In our house we have a bin with the “special” art supplies. It has become a big deal to do an art project and be able to use these supplies. They are all higher quality and are treated with care because they have been deemed “special” in our house.
