  • A portfolio. There are many types available. They must be big enough for your largest pad of paper. You can also check out document folders in office supply stores.

Items marked with *can be quite expensive, and hard to find. You may place an order by calling me. I try to make it more convenient, and by buying in bulk I pass along the savings.( I use ASW or Jerry`s ART-A-RAMA, they have catalogs, or are on the internet)

The list above represents only the very first art supplies that a beginner needs. The list could be endless. Older students might enjoy a variety of pencils, such as 2B, 4B, 6B, 8B, BH, 3H, 4H. Also, the older students might enjoy having a variety of pens and indelible ink. Include a crow quill pen, and extras. If they use pen and ink, they will be needing a pad of suitable drawing paper. Charcoal is fun. But I prefer the student to be more experienced and a bit more mature for these art materials. You can always talk to me.

Items not specially marked can easily be found in local art and craft stores.
