Supply List of Materials:
Painting on top of richly prepared surfaces (grounds) adds complexity and uniqueness to a painting. Through fast and fun explorations of color and texture, we'll end up with a series of paintings.
- Paints - You'll want an assortment of colors and it doesn't matter if they are high or low quality (it's a great way to use up ‘bad paint), so bring whatever you have: craft paints, acrylics, and/or latex, at least 10 colors (think of it as a paint party- the more the merrier!) It can be a mix of paint types. If you have metallics, throw them in too.
- Matt Medium
- Brushes - Bring an assortment of brushes made for acrylic paint; size doesn't have to be exact, anything from 8 to 14; and a 1” utility brush. If you have stencil brushes, bring them.
- Paper: Bristol Smooth or any paper 100 lb. or more. I like working on 14 x 17 but you could work smaller. Have at least 4 sheets. You can buy in pads, this is great paper! Option: you could also bring canvas to work on.
- Paper: Drawing Paper 70 or 80 lb. at least printer size (it could bring heavy printer paper) but larger is better, up to 16 ×20. At least several sheets
- Xacto knife & cutting board (or heavy cardboard to cut on).
- White chalk or white water soluble pencil
- Pencil and ruler
- The usual: water containers, paint palette, paper towels or rags, and your wonderful smile.
- Optional: If you have any stencils bring them.
