Materials List

  • Pencils: Mono Tombow Pencils or Staedler Mars lumograph. pencil weights of 2B, B, HB, H, 2H – 4 each.
  • Paper Mate Tuff Stuff Eraser Stick or any similar stick eraser.
  • Mono Zero Eraser (the round one) – Tiny eraser that brings a lot of control to drawing. I also advise getting refills ahead of time.
  • Pencil Extenders – When pencils get short this extends their life.
  • Kneaded eraser
  • Sandpaper Pencil Sharpeners: Staedtler Mars Sandpaper Lead Pointer or equivalent.
  • Charcoal Pencils: General Charcoal or Wolff’s Carbon Pencils. Minimum of both: 2B, 4B AND General’s Charcoal White Pencil – Minimum of 3
    Please note that these are fragile pencils and dropping one can mean shattering the core rendering the pencil useless. It’s best to bind with a rubber band and carry in a soft case.
  • Canson Vidalon Vellum – 9″ x 12, 50 Sheets – used for drawing and painting.
  • Box Cutter. We use this to carve pencils exposing the lead and use the sandpaper pencil sharpeners to create a very sharp drawing edge for precision work.  I will have this at the studio, so students do not have to bring this with them.
  • An “art canvas 48 pencil case“. This search term will take you to what I recommend. They will protect the pencils very well.
