In Drawing, students will experiment with several different art materials and tools to see what each tool can do best. Students will explore ordinary things around them to become more observant of the structures and meanings of things which can be seen in your their home and community. Your work will be your own study of the forms, textures, movements, and patterns of the things that you see every day. By becoming more observant, by experimenting with new materials, and by exploring a variety of methods, students will continue to grow in artistic skill and enjoyment.

This is a project-based course, which means you will be producing artwork and not just reading about it.  Below is a general list of materials you may need during this course.

Materials Needed:

  • 2 Black Drawing Pencil, 2B

  • Ruler (18”)

  • 1 Round Watercolor Brush #10 & 1 Round #16

  • 1 Bottle India Ink, Black

  • 2 Varsity Pen, self-contained Black Ink

  • Black & White (Crayon, Color Stick or Wax Crayon)

  • Art Eraser

  • 40 sheets Drawing Paper, 9” X 12” White (Sold in pads)

  • 5 Each of Black & Gray Construction Paper

  • Gray Charcoal Paper (This can be purchased in a pack of assorted light shades including gray)

  • White Watercolor Paper (Cold Press/140 lb)…a paper block of 15 sheets of 9" x 12" is best as you will not need to tape your paper down while working on your projects. If you purchase loose pages (in a pad) you will need to use artist tape to keep it flat. You will also need a hard, waterproof surface to use for taping your paper down.

  • Water vessel such as bowl or short wide-mouth jar

  • Ink tray (medium or larger sized lids are okay)

  • Old tablecloth or newspapers for use with watercolor projects

  • Rag or paper towels

  • Rice Paper - 9 ½ x 12 (soft, translucent)
