Art Supplies For Your Mini Franz Kline

Are you a fan of Reggio Emilia and Montessori views of art and learning? Do you love their process method and the respect they bring to tools and materials? Are you tired of paying $3 for a small, blah tube of Crayola paint from Target? (And why is black never in stock?)

If you have a budding visual artist at home, waiting with a smile, standing in a smock, and hand ready for a paint brush, visit Dick Blick Art Materials. I used to buy random paints and supplies at Target, local art supply stores, and Michaels, but this online store is enormous, well priced, and organized. You can find high quality materials to more budget, student priced art supplies. They often have free shipping deals and special sales.

Montessori Services is another excellent online store to find additional art materials, more specific to the Montessori method.

Not sure what to purchase? The Language of Art: Reggio-Inspired Studio Practices in Early Childhood Settings is a great book to learn about setting up an informal art studio at home, projects to do, questions to ask your child, and reasons to get excited about this way of seeing the world. Be sure to check your local library for a copy before buying.
