What you do need:
  • Drawing pencils - 2B, 4B and 6B (can be found in supervalue and any art shops) do not get 2H, 4H or any pencils with a H on it and you are not allowed HB pencils either.  You need to have the correct drawing pencils 2B, 4B and 6B in order to learn how to draw correctly.

  • A set of colouring pencils (no crayons or markers please)
