The Art Basket: My Creative Essentials

This is the contents of my art basket.

I take my art basket almost everywhere I go.  I like to think that if Mary Poppins had a special basket full of the best supplies to inspire creativity and artistic endeavors, it would be my art basket.

The contents of this basket have been honed over many, many years of creating with lots of people in  unconventional places and spaces.

Did I mention that I teach art and creativity for a living? Since most art programs are severely limited in the public arena, I have found success and cliental among the private sector- with remote sessions, group classes and individual private sessions.So, I really mean it when I say the contents of this basket are finely curated.

 

What’s inside the basket?

My Art Basket

The contents of the basket can be divided into specific categories: Paints & Pigments, Blades, Papers, Adhesives & Tapes, Journals, Measurement & Drafting, Drawing Essentials, Tools and Sewing & Mending.

A few points as to what supplies make it in the basket:

  • Nothing to big or to heavy (that eliminates only the essential liquids, paint tubes and paper- because the weight will quickly add up).
  • Everything should fit comfortably and safely, so that nothing is damaged in transport.
  • Supplies such as markers and paint will dry up if left in the sun or hot areas like the car.
  • I have rotating supplies depending on if I am working on specific projects. The rotating supplies would include oil paint (plein air) set, LED portable light-board, portable (photo) printer, polaroid printer, scrapbooking kit,
  • As for the basket, I like African Market Baskets. They are very durable and forgiving with how much they hold. However, the case options are endless, so choose something that fits your lifestyle.
