Sketching Gear 

All of the following items can be purchased online at,, or

  • Sketchbook or drawing pad – bring any sketchbook or pad you like. The instructor uses Strathmore Series 400 Drawing Pad, 24 sheets in 8” x 10” size
  • Pencils – bring what you like to use. The instructor uses a lead* holder (by using a lead holder, you don’t need to bring a pencil sharpener)
    • Prismacolor Turquoise Lead* Holder – 2mm size – buy “4B” lead* refills
    • Pentel GraphGear – 0.9mm size – buy “4B” lead* refills
  • Kneaded eraser – very handy tool
  • Electric eraser – not required, but nice to have. The instructor uses the Sakura Electric Eraser
  • Pens – bring what you like to use. The instructor uses the following:
    • Pentel Stylo (Black)
    • Pentel Hybrid Technica in the 06 and 03 sizes (Black)
  • Fixative – drawings can smudge – here’s a great fixative: hair spray in travel size (so you’ll have no problems at the airport). Spray bottles work better than pump-sprays (although pump is fine if you can’t find a small spray bottle). You can find this item at Target. When using, be sure to let the hairspray dry before you close your sketchbook.
  • Small backpack for your gear, and, if you have room, a small fold-up stool (so you can sit and sketch anywhere)
