Sketchbook: Must be at 8 1/2” x 11” or 9”x12”, wire-bound or hardcover, with white, unlined pages. Wal-Mart carries inexpensive (around $4) wire-bound sketchbooks in the home office section and more expensive sketchbooks in the craft section. Craft stores like Michael’s have a wide variety of sketchbooks, and bookstores like Barnes and Noble sometimes have hardcover sketchbooks on sale for around $5.00. If you cannot find a wire-bound or hardcover sketchbook, you may also use a three-ring binder filled with white printer paper. Tape-bound sketchbooks are not acceptable.
Eraser: Any eraser will do, but gum erasers work best if you can find them. Wal-mart carries gum erasers in their arts and crafts section and their home office section.
Pencils: At least two #2 pencils, your choice. If you choose to use mechanical pencils, you are responsible for your own graphite. I do not keep any in class.
Ruler: Your choice of style.
Markers or colored pencils: These are not required in class, but students should have a set so that they can add color to any work completed at home. Do not bring permanent markers to school.
