Spring ’20 – Materials

Textbook

  • There is no paper textbook to buy.
  • Your smartphone is your textbook.

Materials

  • These materials should be available in your local art/hardware store.
  • Or the LBSU Art Store in FA3
  • None of these materials are overly expensive. But yes, you will need to buy some materials for some of our activities. Fortunately, there is no $100 textbook to buy! Hopefully all the materials will cost you less than a textbook.
