Welcome Back to School

Supply List

 Hello! We are getting ready to return to school after a long and different summer--we know you are as well. We would love for all of our incoming students (6, 7, 8) to have a sketchbook for class. This should be roughly 9 x 12”, and blank paper. With basic art supplies, the more you spend, the better the quality.

  • 9 x 12” Sketchbook- blank drawing paper, 50+ pages

Should we return in Distance Learning, we will require the following extra supplies:

  • 12 color set colored pencils
  • 1 set watercolors
  • 1 black sharpie
  • Pencil

These supplies, if purchased, can also be a great addition to a home art supply area.

Thank you so  much!

We are excited for the new school year to start and to meet your children.
