You can use any art materials you have at home to get started.
If you would like some suggestions, below is a list of materials for a budding artist. You can use any brands, but these are supplies that I have used and recommend because they are good quality and reasonably priced. There is no need to spend a lot of money on art supplies. For your convenience, below are links to Amazon.com if you choose to purchase. These items should also be available in your local craft stores. At this point, The Drawing Connection does not yet directly sell any materials.
