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