Drawing School

Art Supplies

* IN-STUDIO tuition includes all needed art supplies. Students attending in-studio classes do not need to acquire any additional supplies unless they prefer to use different materials than what we provide in the studio.

* ONLINE class students must acquire their own supplies. Our online class tuition has been reduced to compensate for the supply costs normally allocated for each class.

You are also welcome to order supplies from any other source that you prefer. We recommend the products we've listed as very good quality for the price. ActonArt does not receive any commission from Blick or any other suppliers.
