Since this is an open Studio, there are no essential Supplies. Students are expected to bring any supplies they like to work with. Below is a list of supplies for drawing and painting which I recommend

Drawing

Recommended Pencils. 6 or 12 Set Recommended. 2b pencil essential if you only want to buy 1.

Pencil Sander

Hot Pressed Paper- Recommended to go to an art store and pick out something in person. Paper should feel sturdy and have a texture you like.

I use these:

Drawing Board

Lightweight Easel: Students will be responsible for their own easel. These are lightweight, easy to transport, and not too expensive.

Canvas: Any size is fine. Cheap is best.

Pallet- Easy cleanup. Reduces solvent use.

Paint: My favorite brand is Gamblin. Utrecht makes wonderful budget paints. Any brand is fine with the exception of Winsor and Newton (terrible value) and Blick Studio (terrible in general).

Required Colors:

Yellow Ochre, Raw Umber, Titanium White, Alizarin Crimson, Lemon Yellow, Any Blue (I like Prussian or phthalo blue best), Ivory Black

Brushes: I recommend picking up a variety of brush shapes and textures that will give you a lot of room to experiment.

I like brushes with long handles. A lot of artists are more comfortable with short handle brushes.

-Have at least 1 big brush ~ 2 inches wide
-at least 1 very tiny round brush.
-A variety of “Flats”
-A variety of “rounds”
-Filberts and brights are not recommended.
