Tips for starting your adventures in art

Start with some drawing pencils - with a quality set of drawing pencils, you have the foundation to plant the seed for your artistic ambition.

Establish an active sketchbook - make sure you have a sketchbook that allows for largescale drawings so you can capture your ideas as they come to mind.

Find a surface - think about the kind of surface that best reflects your artistic intentions. You may start with basic drawing paper but then move to charcoal (a heavier textured paper) or Bristol (a smooth textured, yet still heavy paper).

Be prepared to erase - you're not expected to get everything right the first time, whether you're an experienced artistic or not, so equip yourself with an eraser to rub out your work and start again.
