Why you should never put your art supplies away
If you put them away they will not be there when you need them. What good are art supplies when they are shoved in drawers or packed in boxes in a room you’ll never go into to create in?
Leave them out, open and in an area where they are easy to access. If you don’t you will not create. You’ll become like everyone else who lost their inspiration a long time ago when they were told to clean up their mess.
And art supplies are not mess.
If someone in your household considers them to be a mess pack away their television, or library of books, game console and beauty products. A bit of reverse psychology never hurt anyone. In the place of the TV, place an easel. Replace the library with sketchbooks and journals. Where the game console was, line up your paintbrushes and paints. In lieu of the beauty products dump.out.the.contents.of.your.pencil.case.
