Students will use a Sketchbook almost everyday. We will use this to complete classwork and homework. It is also used to sketch ideas.

Students must bring pencils and erasures.
All materials provided are shared by the class, if the student would like to use their own special materials they are welcome to.

If you would like to donate art materials, art resources (books, magazines), or general supplies (paper towels, Kleenex, containers etc.) I will be happy to accept them to make up participation.
