Students will need a variety of magazines with rooms & furniture designs for projects. They will need pen & notebook to take notes. Any other materials needed will be discussed in the classroom posts.

We are building an Interior Design Resource Book with each assignment. Students may elect to do assignments digitally (internet research, drafting apps, etc). Students that work digitally will also need a way to share & create a book, so they may need to print. They also need to follow internet safety & respect copyrights. If doing assignments non-digitally, please visit your local hardware, paint or window covering stores to collect free sample brochures (it is usually a good idea to mention you are a student). Students, who are doing assignments non-digitally, will need lots of different magazines/newspaper ads that show interior designed rooms.
