Art students need school supplies too. But when you need budget art materials, where can you go to get them at a discount? One retailer is Michaels. And during Michaels' new school sale, you can snag arts and crafts, easels, washable markers and more for less. And if you shop for regular price purchases you get 20% off with the code 22MADEBYYOU and free shipping on orders of $49 or more.

One item that's usually very expensive for artists are canvases (especially high-quality ones). This sale will give you an eight-pack of 9-by-12 inch canvases by Artist's Loft Necessities for $13. These pastel-colored dual brush pens are $15 (save $12) and work well for coloring, fine art and illustrations. 

If you need acrylic paint, then Liquitex Basics acrylic paint is $11, and if you add another you'll get the second one for 50% off. You can also pick up a Super Value 25-piece brush set for half off too.

While you won't find high-end products here, this sale is ideal for people who want to practice and create without breaking the bank. Head over to Michaels for the entire sale across materials and mediums.
