Foundation Supply Kit

The Foundation Supply Kit (download here) is required of all Foundation students. Your Foundation Supply Kit provides many of the items you will use across several studio classes. The list has been compiled for efficiency — to help you buy supplies all at once, and for a preferred price.

Note: Please also see First Day Materials & Supplies for additional items you MUST bring to your first meeting of each class.

The supply kit will be available at Graphaids located on the 1st floor of the Ahmanson building of the Otis campus.

The total cost of the Supply Kit, including tax, is $232.00.  List price for items purchased individually is substantially higher.  The kit is priced competitively.

Graphaids hours are Monday - Thursday 7:30am - 7pm, Friday 9am - 5pm, Saturday 10:30am - 430pm, Sunday - closed.

 

Foundation Material and Supply Requirements in Addition to the Foundation Supply Kit

Your Foundation Supply Kit will provide many of the items you will use across several studio classes this year.  The list has been compiled for efficiency -- to help you buy supplies all at once, and for a preferred price.

The Foundation Supply Kit does not however constitute all of the tools, materials and/or supplies you will need throughout the year in Foundation.  On an ongoing basis, in each of your classes, various additional materials and supplies will be required.

It is estimated that on a monthly basis, you should plan for approximately $85.00 in expenses related to project requirements in your studio program.  Some months may require little or no new expense, while other months will require more than $85.00 in new expenses.

The best practice for maximizing your preparedness for success in studio classes and minimizing your expenses is to plan ahead, share materials and costs with classmates (when appropriate), shop in a group, and shop around for best prices and availability.

Your faculty will expect you to bring all materials and supplies to class when required.  Faculty will provide reasonable time and sufficient information for you when assigning any new material and/or supply requirements. 

You will also be required to purchase textbooks and course readers for many of your studio courses.  Readers will be available online from universityreaders.com after you have registered for classes. You must purchase your textbooks and readers and bring them to the first class session.  The approximate cost for textbooks and readers for first semester studio courses only is $100.  Additional textbooks and supplies will be required by your Liberal Studies courses.
