Materials: Students must supply their own art supplies.


 We will be painting on canvas. Stretched canvas is preferred for formal projects, canvas sheets taped to a solid substrate are a great for exercises. Recommended canvas size for beginners is 12” x 16/18”.


 Each student may require different brush sets depending on their goals. We recommend starting with

flat shader brushes; Golden Taklon brushes for oil paint, Bristle for Acrylics, in an assortment of sizes, as well as small and medium fan brushes.


 Starter set should include the following:

  •  Titanium White
  • Ivory Black
  • Cadmium Red Hue*
  • Cadmium Yellow Hue*
  • Phtalo Blue
  • Phtalo Green
  • Raw Umber

Other pigments will be recommended on an individual basis.

 Note: do NOT buy, or use in class, the actual Cadmium‐pigment paint, as it is highly toxic and requires special handling. The fake one (It’ll read “Hue”) is just fine.
