Winter 2020 Drawing for Beginners Supply List
Clark College Community Education • CTC 338 • Tuesdays • 6:00pm-8:00pm
Instructor: Patricia Schmidt • 503-287-2899
Please bring these supplies:
- Drawing pencils: a common #2, 2B, 4B, 2H, and F.
The common #2 or HB grade pencil in the middle of the range is considered to be the preferred grade for general purpose. Harder pencils (H) are most often used for crisp lines, while softer grades (B) are most often used for shading or toning. An F grade pencil is hard and sharpens to a fine point.
(Optional: for a wide range of lights to darks could purchase a set of drawing pencils like the Staedtler 12 set Mars Lumograph drawing pencils in metal tin which includes sizes 6B, 5B, 4B, 2B, B, HB, F, H, 2H, 3H, 4H or Derwent Graphic pencil sets or other brands)
- Pencil sharpener
- Removable adhesive putty for lifting pencil lines (also for hanging posters, available at art and office supply stores, I use UHU brand found at art supply stores)
- White plastic eraser
- Hake brush, a soft brush to remove eraser crumbles from paper.
- Q-tips or tortillon or stump to blend shadows (A blending stump is often too bulky to blend very fine detailed areas where a tortillon with its pointy tip can get in there and make a difference. The stumps are great for larger areas and blend very smoothly. You can clean them using a piece of sandpaper.)
- Nail file and a small container to catch filings or sandpaper
- Black Faber-Castell PITT artist India ink pens size XS, S & F or Black Pigma Micron ink pens size .005, 01, and 02 (optional: other pen sizes & colored pens & brush pens)
- Faber-Castell Watercolor Pencil set, at least a 24 color set
- Large hole pencil sharpener for watercolor pencils
- Water-filled brushes: several sizes of round brushes
- Paper towels and a small water container to drip your water-filled brushes in to clean
- 12 inch clear ruler and scissors
- Mixed Media Sketchbook - The Mixed Media Sketchbook paper is heavier than regular sketchbook paper, pencil erases easily and it is suited for pen lines and watercolor washes. Any of these sketchbook sizes will work great: 5.5” x 8.5”, 7” X 10”, 9” x 9”, or 9” x 12”.
- Tracing Paper pad, about the same size as your sketchbook paper & removable scotch tape
- Saral Graphite (not colored) transfer paper
