Supply List: 
  • SOFT PASTELS - With Joan Larson Class Supply List Soft pastels (bring as many as you have). Preferred professional brands are Rembrandt, Sennelier, Holbein, Unison. A good student brand is Mungyo (set of 48). Charcoal pencil and kneaded eraser Pastel Paper - preferably in a middle value neutral colour. Canson Mi- Teintes is an excellent non-sanded paper. La Carte and UArt are excellent sanded papers. Reference material (photos) for the paintings you want to work on *Tracing tissue (optional but a great tool to have) Tracing tissue is helpful for doing your preliminary drawings on as well as protecting your pastel painting from smudging during transportation. I buy it by the roll (usually an 18” roll) but it is also available in smaller pads. Drawing board Foamcor is lightweight, ridge, inexpensive and also has a nice smooth cushioned surface for working on. Folder for carrying your work – 2 pieces of foam cor taped together make an excellent folder and can double as your drawing board. Hand Towels for wiping your fingers and cleaning your pastels.
