On a side note, you can make art beautifully with even the cheapest of tools. I've known artists to use just like dollar water colors and still pull off some pretty amazing art.

If that doesn't work, try ebay I suppose, you can get some stuff so cheap on there. I use golden acrylics, great brand but on the slightly more expensive end so probably not for starting.
Good luck and be sure to share
I started out doing oil painting, and it is by far my favorite medium. But if you're a beginner, try out acrylic paint. It's not as difficult to work with, and it's cheaper. I suggest taking a class to learn the basics. Once you master those, you can do whatever you want. A lot of people just pick up a brush and start painting, and it shows- their art is usually dreadful.
Let us know how it goes!
If all else fails and you absolutely must have supplies you can always go to Dick Blick's art supply online.
I don't do it often (their prices tend to be a little stiff for me most of the time) but on rare occasions when circumstances dictate I use them.
Also check office supply stores and even Walmart/meijer/target may have some cheapo stuff.

It changes everywhere. I live in Australia so unless you live here the stores I use probably won't be much help, but I find that the best art supplies stores, rather than being big chain stores are small local stores in each town/city. Your best bet would be to just google art supplies stores in your specific area and see what you can find.
