  • Palette – “Stay-wet” palettes are useful to keep paint moist between sessions. This palette is a plastic box with lid and a sponge inside. Get the large 12″ x 16″ size if you decide to go this route. An alternative is to get a roll of freezer paper or paper plates with a waxy coating from the grocery store. Some people use plastic ice cube trays and cover them with plastic wrap.
  • 8 painting surfaces – 11″ x 14″ (bring one to the first class). Any of the following are acceptable (don’t need to get anything fancy/expensive at this point)
    • stretched canvas
    • canvas boards
    • hard boards
    • canvasette (canvas paper)
  • Artist tape or masking tape
  • Ruler or straight edge
  • Water container (fairly large, for rinsing brushes) Peanut butter jar size at a minimum.
  • Roll of paper towels or a rag
  • Paper & pencil for sketching and note-taking
  • Soap for washing brushes
  • A tote bag or some kind of way to carry everything (some people use a cardboard box for carrying home wet paintings)
  • Apron or old shirt to keep paint off your clothes
