EXPLANATORY NOTES/ADDITIONAL SUPPLIES

There will be a shared supply of the Caron d’Ache Neocolor II crayons at CCAE. However, I recommend that each student pick out a few colors that are especially appealing—keeping in mind that there will be standard colors available in the shared supply. CCAE has thin acrylic plates in various sizes, small containers of Createx monotype base, Kozo blend paper, and BFK Rives paper available for purchase on site. I recommend bringing photos and sketches to use as inspiration for your printmaking. You are also welcome to bring any small items to serve as subject matter, such as a small flower arrangement. Finally, you may wish to purchase only what you need for each upcoming class, instead of purchasing all supplies at one time.
