    Hey Lou_lilburn,

    Some of the things that should get you started within your course is,

    - A3 sketch book
    - pens
    - pencil + colouring pencils
    - ruler
    - eraser
    - sharpener


    Depending which pathway you take, your tutor will advice you on what you would need to continue.

    Hope this helps

    Would you recommend having a spiral bound sketch book or another kind?

    Hi Lou!

    The preference is up to you, whatever you are comfortable with for taking notes, sketches, although a spiral one may be cleaner as you do a fair bit amount of work outside the sketchbook which may involve some tearing of paper and sticking back in.

    Hope this helps,
    Jay

    Hi Lou!

    The preference is up to you, whatever you are comfortable with for taking notes, sketches, although a spiral one may be cleaner as you do a fair bit amount of work outside the sketchbook which may involve some tearing of pages and sticking back in.
