Also bring a kneaded eraser, a white plastic eraser, Strathmore or Canson Bristol vellum paper around 9x12 or 10x14, and a pencil sharpener. If your pencils are new please sharpen them prior to class, and be sure to sharpen the end opposite the color name and number. A clipboard will make a very nice drawing board if your paper is 9X12.
The list I am giving you is very basic and allows you to mix further colors. I am suggesting Prismacolor pencils, as they are easier to find that many European brands. If you have a set of artist quality pencils, such as Faber Castell Polychromos, or Derwent, these should be just fine. The point is to have artist quality with which to work.
