What tools do I need to take this class?
You do not need any specific tools, as the class is not medium- or technique-specific. You can use any tools, analog or digital, that you enjoy using to create a drawing. That said, here a few "nice to have"s for artists working with non-digital tools:
- Drawing, mixed media or watercolor paper
- Variety of graphite pencils, ink, colored pencils or watercolors
- Hand mirror
- Lightbox, or tracing paper
If you are using digital tools, then you will want a drawing app that has layers (Procreate, Photoshop, etc.) and a hand mirror.
