These can be found at most art stores and some crafts stores will carry them as well. The best deal is to use the coupons from Michaels/Joann’s
- Drawing board – 24 x 36 (We have a few extra boards you can borrow)
- Drawing pad – 18×24 – Any brand. Try to find a “newsprint” pad. It’s the most affordable type of paper.
- Pencils – I recommend vine charcoal to help you stay loose and quick with gestures and any other kind of charcoal pencil for details. My favorite pencils are Conte but beginners sometimes find them to be too dark and unforgiving.
- Erasers – some people love kneaded erasers but I think for beginners the best one is art gum but really any eraser will work.
Most importantly… Do not get hung up on specific supplies! The goal is to just draw! If you just show up with some paper and something to make marks, you’re ready!
