Classroom Supplies        

 There is a 15 dollar room fee that is crucial for the funding of engaging art projects and art education.

This money is wisely invested into such necessary classroom supplies as drawing pencils, erasers, acrylic paint, tempera paint, paint brushes, colored pencils, rulers, compasses, protractors, brayers, printmaking blocks, scissors, glues sticks, glue bottles, tape, drawing paper, painting paper, construction paper, watercolors, oil pastels, charcoal, drawing pens, clay, and markers. 

 


 


 

Visual Art 1

Required Supply

 

8 1/2 by 11 inch sketchbook.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Hardcover (Preferred if possible!)       Wirebound  (good)            Sketchpads are not the same as                                                                                                                                              sketchbooks.

A sketchbook is an important supply for all levels of art class. This is something that is used nearly every day and is turned in for a grade regularly. 

Sketchbooks can be found at Walmart in the arts and crafts area. There is a wider selection offered at Hobby Lobby and at Michaels in Murfreesboro. (Go to their websites to print off a 40 percent coupon before going) Longer lasting and better quality sketchbooks are best bought at Hobby Lobby or Michaels if you are interested in purchasing something high quality. You can also find high quality sketchbooks at Books-a-Million and Barnes and Noble. 

Wirebound softcover sketchbooks are a good inexpensive option. 

Hard cover are preferred for their durability and are usually better at holding up over time. They are not as likely to fall apart with heavy usage like the wirebound. ***EDIT (The Walmart hardcover sketchbooks have a binding the does fall apart)

Do NOT buy sketchpads. These are similar to sketchbooks, but they are soft cover and the pages are glued in and are generally very poor quality paper. These will DEFINITELY fall apart before the student is able to use them. 

If a student is serious about their interest in art then invest in a higher quality sketchbook. The higher quality sketchbooks have better paper that can handle erasing without smudging and other materials like pen and maker. You get what you pay for when it comes to sketchbooks.

Visual Art 2, 3, and 4 

Required Supply

8 1/2 by 11 inch sketchbook. 

A sketchbook is an important supply for all levels of art class. This is something that is used nearly every day and is turned in for a grade regularly. 

Sketchbooks can be found at Walmart in the arts and crafts area. There is a wider selection offered at Hobby Lobby and at Michaels in Murfreesboro. Longer lasting and better quality sketchbooks are best bought at Hobby Lobby or Michaels if you are interesting in purchasing something nice. 


Wirebound are ok but are not very sturdy when they are used heavily throughout a whole year. 

Hard cover are preferred and are better at holding up over time. They are not as likely to fall apart with heavy usage like the wirebound. 

Do NOT buy pads of sketchbook paper that is soft cover and where pages are glued in. These will DEFINITELY fall apart before the student is able to use them.

  • A set of colored pencils

 In the upper level art class it is expected that students begin to take their pursuit of art skills seriously. To advance in art mean taking the time to do art at home as well as school. Students are expected to work in their sketchbooks at home. To get the most from your at home art you need to have a few basic art supplies of your own. Only students who take time to pursue art during their own independent study time will excell in this class. Remember the art room is always available during study hall times and occasionally after school if prearranged with teacher.
