Materials list/Equipment and supplies:
The list below applies to general materials and equipment. The Union Bookstore and Varney's sell most of these items in a KIT identified by the course number DSFN 201.

You are encouraged to discuss a selection of colored pencils, inking pens and sketchbooks with the instructor before buying. Specific materials needed for each project will be discussed as projects are introduced.
