1. A set of NuPastel and/or a set of Rembrandt are good for starters. Mid size sets are recommended. When the smallest sets are purchased, the student does not get enough color to choose from.
2. Canson MiTientes single sheets of paper 25 x 19" (these may be purchased from the instructor, and may be cut down) I do not recommend the pads of Canson paper.
3. LargeDrawing Board with clips to accomodate 25 x 19" paper.!
4. Vine or Willow charcoal sticks. The thinner the better! !
