Should beginner artists use expensive art supplies?
Debate Rounds (3)
(that should get me points for sources!)
It can go both ways. If the artist would rather use cheaper art supplies such as Crayola, they should do that because it makes them happier.
It all depends on which would make the artist happier, and which supplies enhance their experience.
Please let me win! I will be everyone's friend!
You mentioned that the artist may regret it if he/she screws up and wastes art supplies. It's all part of the learning experience. And it's not like it's just beginners that do this. There are artists who are absolutely phenomenal, but they will screw up here and there and waste lots of art supplies, (which ultimately translate to money) on a piece that ended up in the trash can. Because of this, It's ultimately inevitable that an artist will waste some art supplies here and there, no matter how good or bad they are.
I do agree with your statement that an artist should use beginner art supplies and progress up. Though that may be what many artists would do (including me), they should still go whatever path they wish. Like I said, an artist should use whatever supplies they want, especially if it enhances their experiences in the art world.
