How to Save Money on Art and Craft Supplies

This guide shows how you can save money on art and craft supplies, whether you are a serious artist or a hobbyist.

Sketching requires a pencil and a piece of paper, and that piece of paper need not be expensive. Artists who sketch a lot can find that the cost of sketching paper can really add up. The solution is to recycle blank paper. I have a stash of many different kinds of paper, old envelopes, computer documents which are used on just one side, even stationery. This type of paper is perfect for sketching on.

You can even make your own recycled paper sketchbooks by cutting old paper to the same size using a paper cutter. Then, bind it together by stapling along one edge. Crease the pages away from the spine of the book so that it is easy to use for sketching. It does not matter if your sketchbook pages are many different colors or types of paper - this only adds to the charm.

Look for arts and crafts supplies at thrift stores, garage sales and even on eBay. At these places, you can often find collections of slightly used or even new art supplies at bargain prices.

Keep alert to sales run by art supply stores. Many art supply stores hold frequent sales to appeal to artists. Watch the websites of several art supply stores or get on their mailing lists. When a sale is run that offers major bargains, consider buying your arts and crafts supplies all at once to take advantage of sales prices rather than as you need them. Many artists buy the brunt of their supplies a couple of times of year to take advantage of sales.

Shop around. Arts and crafts supply stores can vary hugely in prices. One of my favorite art supply stores with a huge selection and online ordering is listed at the end of this article.

Do it yourself. Making or constructing your own art or craft supplies can save you money. For instance, you can often make your own canvases for cheaper than buying them ready made. You need stretcher bars (which you can even make yourself) canvas, staples and gesso. You can find books on making your own canvasses on Amazon.
