Weisensel, Sophia – About Face Materials List


The key is to have a variety of pencil weights, from light to dark. Any brand will work, I do prefer Grafwood (Caran d’ Ache) or Derwent. I recommend bringing:

  • H
  • 2B
  • 4B
  • 6B
  • 7B
  • 8B
  • 9B
  • Utility knife
  • Sandpaper block
  • Kneaded eraser
  • Large art stumps an/ or chamois cloth
  • Sketchbook / small loose paper to work on
  • Clips for attaching paper to drawing board

If you have a type of paper you prefer to use please bring it! I will also bring a few types of paper to discuss in class. I recommend 2 pieces of smooth drawing paper, white/ cream, medium in size ( around 12/16/18 inches ).

Best brands:

  • Fabriano
  • Strathmore
  • Stonehenge
  • Canson
