Secondary Individual Art Supplies

  • Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the concern of keeping students safe, the CDC mandates that supplies may not be shared among students. Our middle school and high school art teachers will require each art student to purchase the following Individual Art Supplies that will stay with each student as they come to class and go home. This ensures that art students will have access to their art supplies if quarantine becomes necessary. As a reminder, our art students are still required to pay their standard BISD Course Catalog fees, which will include more art supplies to complement this list of supplies.  The Course Catalog fees materials will be prepared and sanitized by your art teachers and added to their individual art kits in the fall semester. If students already have some of these supplies from other school supply lists, they do not need to purchase duplicate supplies. 

    All of the below listed items can be found in person and online at Walmart, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Amazon, Target, Asel Art Supply, and Herweck’s. Some of these retailers also offer discounted bundles which include all drawing elements (pencils, erasers, tortillons, and sharpener).
