Sketch pad and pencil. A 6B pencil would do or one with a soft graphite.
Soft Pastels: Dark, mid tone, light values. It is important to get a good quality soft pastel from your local art store. You do not need a large quantity as long as you have the values. The store can make recommendations for you.
Sources for Pastels and paper:
Terry Ludwig Studios (local) has a basic value assortment of pastels or you may pick from open stock. A small selection of paper is also available, 303 795 1232. His pastels are my favorite. Meininger’s and Guiry’s also carry pastels and paper. I like Canson paper, smaller sizes around 8 X 10 in neutral colors and black if you want to give it a try. Bring a few sheets of Canson and any other pastel paper you might want to try. Some papers will also be available at the workshop.
An apron or old shirt
Inspirational reference photos or bring images on IPad or Computer.

Small area rug to place under your easel to catch any pastel droppings

Try to arrive early around 9:15 to get settled before class begins. Wait to set up your pastels until after the initial lecture.
Looking forward to seeing you, Jane
