Hello quarantined artists! I hope everyone is well. I know we are all eagerly awaitng back-to-school plans. Something you can do in the meantime is go ahead and gather art supplies for your course. A list of materials you will want in your possession are below. You can easily find these supplies in stores like Walmart in the office or craft section.
8 ½ x 11 or 9x12 spiral bound sketchbook (if not spiral bound, pages will fall out). I also really enjoy Canson's mixed media sketchbooks for watercolor.
Colored pencils (Crayola is fine. Prismacolor is my favorite)
2 Large Erasers (like Pink Pearl)
a pack of regular wooden pencils (not mechanical) or drawing pencils that range from 2H to 6B
Handheld Pencil Sharpener
Ultra Fine Point Sharpie
Crayola Watercolor palette
Zippered Pencil Pouch or vessel to hold materials
When school is in session I will be adding assignments to your class page on my website. You should download the Teams App where lessons and projects can be accessed. Go to https://teams.microsoft.com/downloads to download. Use your school OneDrive login to access all of your classes in this App. Classes will be turning in assignments on this platform. You can ask me questions concerning your project on the Teams app as well. Please continue to check in for future instructions. Thanks! I miss you all.
