Pencils - any pencil will do but Ticonderoga is a trusted brand for their quality and durability.
White drawing paper: any whote paper preferably without lines, a drawing pad, photocopy paper, a bound sketchbook, computer paper
Pencil sharpener: This is good for sharpening regular pencils and colored pencils
Eraser: any eraser will do but Paper Mate - Pink Pearl is latex free and do not leave pink makes on the paper
Black permanent marker: Sharpie brand works the best. These are used for outlining. Outlining helps with fine motor skills and makes the lines in children's' art more noticeable, as they often draw softly and their lines tend to fade away under marker and paint.
Colored construction paper: 9x12 assorted colors, any brand works
Crayons: Crayola crayons 24 or 32 count is what is used in the art room
Markers: Crayola Broad Tip 10 count are an economical option with good quality.
Liquid glue: Liquid glue holds things together better than a glue stick. Elmer's brand is what we use in the art room. A glue stick will work.
Scissors: Any band will work. Please make sure they fit your student's hand. Larger scissors are harder for younger students to cut with.
OPTIONAL but would be nice to have:
Watercolor set: set of 8 oval pan watercolors prang or crayola are recommended. These sets should come with a paintbrush
Colored pencils: (grades 3-5 only) Colored pencils come in various qualities and prices. Any variety will work. Crayola 12 ct. colored pencils are economical option with a good quality.
