Artist essentials: 15 must-have items for your studio (that aren’t art supplies)

In this video, I share 15 must-haves for my art studio that aren’t art supplies. These items are essential for keeping my workspace organized, improving my workflow, and enhancing my overall artistic experience. From microfiber cloths to spray bottles and more, these non-art supply items are must-haves for any artist looking to create a more efficient and enjoyable studio environment.
