Sketchbook or Loose sheets of paper (any size 6×9 inches or above)

*Note on sketchbooks: Loose copy paper or newsprint can take the place of a skecthbook. The less valuable the paper is, the more you will draw. Students are often reluctant to just draw in a sketchbook, because they want their finished sketch to look presentable. When you’re learning, you can’t waste your time worrying about those trivial things. So more important than a sketchbook is regular, inexpensive copy paper.
