First day of Art Fundamentals

I’m a future college freshman going into Art Fundamentals at Seneca College in Sept 2018. Seneca has resources on how to prepare for the first day, like getting my ID card, how to get involved in student life, etc. But no one has told me what I should bring on the first day of classes.

My first day will consist of two classes: Colour Studio I and Drawing I. They’re both lectures. But do I need art supplies? Will the instructors tell us what to bring on the first day?

I will definitely be bringing notebooks and writing utensils. Anyone have any advice? It would be awesome if past Art Fundamentals students saw this and answered.

Also, there is a one-hour break between my two classes. What do I do during that time? Just hang out? I’ll probably walk around campus to familiarize myself, but anyone have any suggestions?

  1. Lol, Grace. This is some nonsensical fine arts program. I'm sure if you just show up with a few paintbrushes and colour palettes, the profs will automatically grant you a 4.0.

  2. Don’t worry dear. I’m sure the school has equipment you can borrow on the first day, since it is the first day and many students like you may be confused on what to have with you. If you do have art supplies though, it certainly would not hurt to bring them for good measure. I always feel better using my own things when I’m in a new class and unfamiliar environment. Then again, not having stuff gives you an excuse to talk to people and make friends by asking to borrow things, lol. As for lunch: explore! enjoy yourself, mingle with different crowds, or until you feel ready for that bring a nice book. Just go there, be yourself, and remember your goals and why you came here.

  3. To be honest, I cannot answer all your questions, because I myself do not study at Art Fundamentals. But, you are very lucky, because my good friends from the site just work in this area and you can contact ask them, maybe someone from and studied there and will be able to answer all your questions. They are professionals and therefore I can safely recommend them to you.
    Also on their page there are a huge number of different pictures and you can learn something. I hope that my comment was useful to you
