Supply List for Drawing Workshops and Classes

Click here for a printable supply list. (It may take time to load.) You do not need to buy everything shown!  With just a pad of paper and a regular pencil, you could work for years! There are additional supplies, like household items, on the list that are not pictured below. If you'd like to experiment with a medium, get the supplies shown below and described in the supply list. To make it easy for you to find them, most of the supplies include a link to Amazon which provides a small commission to me for purchases made. I greatly appreciate your support, but please feel free to purchase supplies anywhere. These are all products that I use (and love) myself.
