You do not need any new supplies. You can come with some scratch paper and a yellow pencil! Or hunt through your pencil drawers for a variety of pencils and pens.
If you do want a new sketch book and drawing tools, you can pick up a good sketch book from your local art store, craft store, or super store. Make sure if you want to take it on the trail, it’s easy to carry! If you will want to use watercolor, note that watercolor books have many fewer pages. I like to have one small drawing sketchbook with a couple hundred pages, which frees me to feel good about experimenting – and a separate watercolor sketchbook.
You’ll also want a ziplock bag or stiff pencil carrier, a couple pencils and pens, and a good eraser. I love having an assortment of pencils: BH (that’s a #2 pencil in America) as well as a B2 and a B4, and nice charcoal. You can get a little set with an assortment.
If you will want to add color, you can get colored fine tip pens, watercolor pencils and a paintbrush and water bottle, or a small portable watercolor set (plus brush and water). For watercolors, splurge on a set for artists if that’s in your budget.
As I mentioned, you don’t need to do shopping for this class. But if you want to, Utrecht is where I purchase most of my art supplies. Buying through THIS LINK to Utrecht Art Supply gives a little profit back to this site. Thanks!
I hope you enjoy this free drawing class!
