DRAWING AND WRITING
In 1stgrade, for drawing and beginning form drawing, you will need block crayons. A small set is sufficient, although these crayons last and will be used throughout the years so invest in the biggest set you can afford. In 1stgrade when you’re child starts to write (and for the second part of form drawing) stick crayons are necessary. Stick crayons will be needed for 2nd and 3rd Grade so do invest in the largest set you can afford.
Paper: Watercolor paper is necessary for the Waldorf Curriculum and should be the best you can afford. 11” x 22” Watercolor paper is recommended for every grade. Paper Scissors Stone sells a heavy student-grade Strathmore paper, and a light and heavy weight Fabriano Watercolor paper.
Watercolor Brushes – 1stGrade: You will only need one wide brush, as generally, you and your child are not painting at the same time. The ¾” flat brush is recommended.
Paint: For 1st grade, phthalo blue, golden yellow and rose red are recommended.
A painting board is suggested. Paint jars with screw-top lids are highly recommended so you can keep your mixed paints between use.
