Tools & Materials



Again, experimentation is key when choosing the types of tools that you wish to use in your work. 


Not only will you require the basic tools used for drawing but you should also start viewing all objects as possible tools for your art work (in order to create creative work).  Trial and error is important; much of your experimentation may go horribly wrong and not turn out as expected but this experimentation is worth the time and effort in order to find a technique that works for you. 



One example would be our experimentation of using bamboo sticks for drawing while completing some warm up drawing exercises during the Certificate in Drawing & Visual Investigation course.



Below is a list that may assist in inspiring you with some ideas on materials and tools that may interest you as a starting point for your work (click on each of the below to learn more):
