The onset of a new academic year is the perfect opportunity to make a fresh start! Being organised and prepared is crucial to performing well at university and that starts with a systematic approach to your studies to ensure you’re allocating your time and resources effectively.  

This includes everything from maintaining an orderly study space, to planning your course schedules, and ensuring you have all the necessary supplies and materials. 

Getting organised for the start of the year isn’t only good for your grades, it also reduces stress and increases your enjoyment of the university experience. 

Essential Checklist for Art Students 

For our art students, there are a few unique items to consider when getting organised for the year: 

  1. Art Supplies: This includes sketchpads, a variety of pencils, paintbrushes, acrylic or oil paints, and other mediums you prefer to work with. 
  1. Portfolio Case: A sturdy portfolio case will be invaluable for transporting your artwork safely and professionally. 
  1. Organisational Tools: Consider getting a toolbox or organiser for your smaller art supplies. Keeping your workspace tidy can help foster creativity! 
  1. Digital Tools: Depending on your course and personal preference, graphic tablets and design software might be necessary. 
  1. Inspiration Sources: Art books, magazines, or tickets to local art galleries can all serve as inspiration throughout your academic journey. 

Remember, this list is not exhaustive and will vary based on your individual course requirements and artistic preferences. Always check with your lecturers to verify you have all the necessary materials for your course.
