Precollege Middle School Workshop Opening Day Supply Lists

The supply lists below reflect materials needed for the entire program. Instructors will email students with the materials required for the first day so they do not need to carry all materials every day. Classroom storage is limited, so students will be expected to carry many of their art supplies with them to-and-from class.

 * Note: These lists are used for general purposes. To see if a course is running in a specific semester, visit our Precollege Classes webpage.
** We strongly recommend students bring a few small, adhesive bandages with them for their convenience. Typically needed for footwear issues, not injuries!
