Required Supplies:

  1. #2B Pencil (woodless – they require less sharpening). Don’t need a range of pencils like H, 2H, etc., but if you have a set, that’s okay.
  2. Piece of clear plastic plexiglass (CLEAR, not frosted – the lightest weight you can find), 8” x 10” (can purchase at hardware store or similar). Use a permanent marker to draw two crosshairs on the plastic, a horizontal and a vertical line crossing at the center. (Consider using the plexi from this cute frame)
  3. A “viewfinder”, made of heavy cardboard (eg. mat board ) – 8” x 10”. Cut a centered rectangular opening of 4 1/4” x 5 1/4” in the viewfinder. Please make sure the cuts are clean and cut square.
  4. A non-permanent black fine-pointed felt tip marker
  5. Two small bulldog clips to fasten your viewfinders to the plastic picture plane
  6. 2B conté sticks (not pencil), black and white
  7. Masking tape
  8. Pencil sharpener or knife to sharpen pencils
  9. White eraser
  10. Canson Mi-Teintes Tobacco Brown (full size and cut down in class)
  11. A pad of drawing paper at least 9” x 12”
  12. Something to use as a drawing board, like masonite, at least 14” x 18”. Should have a smooth surface.
