Drawing Supplies

Supplies for Drawing and Figure Drawing Classes

Tools drawn by feel rather than sight.

Tools drawn by feel rather than sight.

  • 1 each of 2H, and 6B pencils, or a small drawing pencil ki.
  • White eraser.
  • Spiral-bound sketch book, 9 x 12 or a bit larger.  Regular drawing paper is fine, but if you want to start water coloring over your sketches, you might like a mixed-media sketchbook with heavier paper. 
  • Micron Pigma pens, 1 and 3.
  • Pencil sharpener with a reservoir built in for the shavings.
  • A little satchel or tool box to carry your supplies in.
  • Fun to have:
    • Inktense or Faber-Castell or Crayan D'ache set of 6 or 8 watercolor pencils.  
    • Watercolor Kit-- bring if you have, but one of our lessons will by on types and kinds of kits, so you can build your own with some sense of what to buy. 
    • A white pen-- this sounds weird, but if you are someone who loves ink drawing and toned paper, this is a fun one. 

My Figure Drawing Class sessions require a slightly expanded kit: 

  • 16 x 20 or 18 x 24 newsprint pad
  • 16 x 20 drawing paper pad
  • Black and white conte crayon
  • Toned paper, 11 x 14 inches, a pad of mixed colors works well..
