*Quality is important for brushes, panels/canvases and paints. You don’t want to feel discouraged right out the gate due to  poor quality tools. My favorite local store for these quality materials is Artist and Craftsman as they have frequent sales + in  person assistance + no shipping fees/no waiting time. My favorite online store is Jerrys Artarama and they offer amazing deals  year round. They often offer FREE shipping if you purchase a certain amount and their shipping speed is typically like Amazon PRIME- super FAST!
