Which Art Supplies Are Right for Your Age & Experience Level?, Honolulu, Hawaii

As your skill as an artist grows, so does your need for better art supplies. Hawaiian Graphics—an arts and crafts store in Honolulu—has been the ultimate location for all your fine art, painting, and drawing supplies since 1973. They have a variety of brands and supplies to aid novices and art experts alike. 

When you start out drawing or painting, you do not use or have the same need for tools as someone who’s an art expert. Here are some ideal art supplies to complement different age groups or experience levels:

  • Finger Paint: Many artists started their drawing careers by finger painting, and although many prominent painters still only use finger painting, it is still most commonly used to introduce young children to painting. Finger paint designed for children is typically non-toxic, washable, and comes in a pack of four to six colors. 
  • art-supplies-honolulu-hiPencils & Erasers: Most everyone doodles with a pencil as a child, but as you begin a career as a professional artist, the drawing supplies in your possession start to matter more than they did when you were seven. Each artist will have to discover which brand works best for them, but to help you get started, pick up a pencil set with a range of graphite options. You could also purchase a larger set that offers eraser options to improve your drawing.
  • Canvas: When you are ready to move away from paper and sketchbooks, canvas is an excellent material to use. Setting up a canvas is usually an ideal method of painting for experts or adults who have their own workspace or art studio, especially since it requires setting up painting supplies nearby. Also, canvas painting requires using a specific set of tools that depend on the type of painting you prefer to do, so head to the art supply store to get what you need before beginning your project.

Whether you are new to drawing and painting or you have been creating art for years, Hawaiian Graphics in Honolulu has all the art supplies you need. Contact them today at (808) 973-7171 to find out how they can help you stock up on all your favorite supplies. You can also visit them online to get a good idea of their current inventory. Be sure to follow them on Facebook to stay up to date on current promotions and to learn helpful tips.
