    Re: artmaking tool?

    Neither phrase is natural. What kind of tools do you consider to be used for "art making"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I am referring to those tools normally used by students to do art work.
    If neither is correct, how should I desribe those tools?

    Artist's tools/equipment.

    I'd say "art supplies." But I've only ever bought them for my child, not for a "serious artist."
