START: It's time to try something new

by Cass Art

It's always a great time to try something new. Open your eyes, expand your horizons, test the waters and push those boundaries.

And that's what our new START campaign is all about - starting something creative for the first time.

Are you an experienced artist who wants to try something new? Perhaps give oil painting a go after years of acrylic? Or maybe you want to start drawing on paper again, after you spend so much time on the screen? Or perhaps you're a complete beginner but you're eager to give art a go - pick up that pencil, that paintbrush or pen, and dive straight in. Well, starters, we applaud you, and our entire February is dedicated to you, and you alone.

START is separated into five helpful categories so you can get the tips you need for whatever art journey you're going begin: Start Oil Painting, Start Acrylic Painting, Start Watercolour, Start Drawing and Start Print Making.
