From Whitney <email@example.com>:
Whitney Wetherill continues her class on Drawing for Beginners on Mondays at 10am and Wednesdays at NOON. THIS IS A SLIGHT SCHEDULE CHANGE. Each class runs slightly over an hour. An interest, a pencil, and any kind of paper are all you need! She does this out of the kindness of her heart but encourages attendees to donate $5 per class to any food bank of your choice. Enrollment is required.
I would LOVE to have you and I'm hoping the new time slot helps some people to be able to join.

I want to send a course description to the people who sign up because it will be helpful if they can set up a place in their house where they can put a subject (like an apple) with a light on it, especially for the first lesson. Also, I'd hope that they can have their smartphone AND a computer or tablet so that we can send images back and forth by text while they stay on the Zoom call screen.
For the first lesson, they can get away with some paper that's at least as good as decent typing paper, a clip board or some tape to fasten it down, and an eraser (not the one on the pencil, just a kid's pink eraser). But a full list of supplies is below. These items are available all over the place, including Walmart, Ocean State Job Lot on 31, and online at Amazon, dickblick.com, and elsewhere.
Nobody should buy anything MORE than this for the first 5 lessons. If they like it and want to keep going, there are obviously lots more ways to spend money!
1 drawing pad preferably with spiral binder like this:
Couple of #2 pencils. If they want drawing pencils I suggest keeping it simple - a set of 4 to 6 pencils of assorted hardness is fine.
A white vinyl eraser:
A pink eraser:
A pencil sharpener:
