YOU DO NOT NEED to be a “creative” or an “artist” or have the best quality art supplies, a simple starter kit will do fine, better than fine! This should not feel stressful or overwhelming, for this is about exploring new creative possibilities. As you grow confidence you will eventually want to invest in higher quality art supplies, and I will suggest my personal favorites.
