Drawing - Beginner on Zoom

SUPPLIES for Rosie Cerrone's Drawing Class:

Drawing pencils (2H, HB, 2B)
Drawing paper
A light box OR tracing paper

Note: If youíre considering a light box, I recommend the Huion L4S LED Light Pad (A3 size). Itís thin, extremely lightweight, and Iíve had mine for almost five years. As someone who does a lot of traditional drawing, itís saved me countless hours.
