  • Scrap paper 15 sheets (8 ½ x 11 is fine) This can be used copy paper printed on one side.

  • A 2B or HB pencil

  • Be thinking of color palettes that appeal to you and choose pencils and pastels accordingly

  • A small set of Prismacolor Artist’s Quality colored pencils (or similar) or 2 warm and 2 cool colors of Prismacolor colored pencils (or similar). We will be layering on top of these with water-based media so avoid watercolor pencils.

  • Pencil sharpener

  • Soft Chalk Pastels not oil pastels. Choose 3-6 colors of your choice. Choose deep hues that are saturated with color. Avoid pale hues. Pan pastels are expensive but well worth it.  A small set of Alpha Color Pastels or Mungyo brands work well. Avoid Nupastel brand. (Rebecca will bring extra pastels to share)

  • ¼ -½ sheet of sandpaper 220 or finer. This will be for grinding stick pastels.

  • Tuff Stuff eraser or Tombo Mono Zero Eraser or General's Factis Mechanical Eraser or Pentel Click Eraser if you can’t find one of the other 3 (they are the fine tip white erasers that are housed in a retractable case). My favorite is Tombo Mono Zero)

  • Kneaded eraser
