4: Mental Mountain Series: “Supplies Are Expensive”

This Mental Mountain is STRAIGHT UP fear-based. Volta & Bree dig into the root of this fear before we dig in to practical things you can use to get started. While art supplies (musical instruments, graphic design software, etc) can cost megabucks, with some creativity and a bit of research you can create with anything. We can’t stress this enough–don’t overcomplicate it. You can create with things you already have in your home if you stretch your creative muscle, go on a quick scavenger hunt, and stay open-minded. Even simple tools and materials can be elevated through concept and technique.

We’ll give you a list of many different ways to overcome the budget excuse like skipping your Starbucks run (just once!) to pay for your Crayola watercolor set, to using things you already have around your house. We’ve already seen a lot of you getting creative with your mediums for your #CBPWorkout, so let’s keep it going and take it to the next level!!!
