    SUPPLIES: 

    You must always have on hand: 

    1. A PENCIL

    2. WORK CLOTHES:  When we are working on sets you must be dressed appropriately. Keep something at school that you can build or paint in.  NO OPEN TOED SHOES!!!!  Keep long hair pulled back.  I will not listen to you whine that you got primer on your clothes or jewelry or that you got sawdust on your best sweater.  If I do not think you are dressed to work, I won't let you and that means no daily points for that day. Tough!  EXPECT TO GET MESSY EVERYDAY.
