Photo Caption: This and the next couple of videos will be about arts, mostly the material/tools side of things.

werken = to work
potloden = pencils (literally: “pot” + “lood” (lead), since lead was molten in a pot to create the precursor of the current graphite-pencils)
gummen = erasers (this plural also works as the verb “to erase”)
pastelkrijt = pastels (literally: “pastel” + krijt (crayon and/or chalk))
in toenemende mate = increasingly (literally: in (an) increasing amount)
worden = to be(come) (a linking verb)
gebruikt = from “gebruiken” (to use)

Hope this helps!
