List of Supplies

What you will need in this course…

  • A large canvas. 24″ x 24” is a nice size to start with. Use any flat surface. Painting is done on a table. (If you prefer an easel, please use one). Canvas can be purchased at any art supply store. I buy used prints at my local thrift shop and paint over them with a white or blue primer.
  • Acrylic paints in primary colors: Yellow, Blue, Red
  • Any other paints you fancy: student grade, basic quality and craft acrylic paints work well
  • White and Black paint
  • A variety of paint brushes that are made for acrylic paints.  Good sizes to have: ROUND, sizes 2, 6, 10 
  • Container for water, spray bottle with water, rags/paper towel, palette to hold paint
  • Drawing paper (any paper to practice on) a pencil (charcoal, HB) and an eraser
  • Nice to have: posca pens, markers, stencils
  • Extra: to make this time sacred – candles, incense, flowers, soft flowing music, anything that speaks to you
