Students are required to purchase a select list of supplies to use in their first year at CIA. The complete list can be found here.
Students may purchase the items on the list separately or they can order a Supply Kit directly from Blick. Information about Blick's kit can be found below as well as information about ordering textbooks.
Please note: the Supply Kits provided by Blick do not fill all the requirements on the supply list. Items such as text books and other miscellaneous supplies are NOT included in either kit. Please read the complete supply list carefully.
A note about the Alber’s Interaction of Color book: It doesn’t matter which version/edition you purchase. Each edition has the same information with newer editions having more color plates.
Students can order textbooks from any major retailer including Case Western Reserve's Bookstore. Students can use this link to find and order their textbooks from CWRU's Bookstore. The department code is CIA. The list of textbooks students need can be found in the Foundation Supply list.
