Must Haves Supplies:
Acrylic Paint- We recommend a set of Liquitex Basics 6 (4fl oz tubes) for those just learning to use acrylics. A set with mars black, titanium white, napthol crimson, ultramarine blue, cadmium yellow medium hue and phthalocyanine green are necessary.

Canvas- 1 canvas sized 16×20″ (can be a board, panel, or stretched canvas)

Palette Paper- Paper palette pad, paper plates or sta-wet palettes will all work

Suggested Supplies (Available for loan):
Paint Brushes- We have plenty at the studio you may borrow, however we recommend a basic set of your own, as it is always better to learn with your own tools.

Palette knife- recommended but not necessary

Water Jar with lid- Mason Jars or Talenti Gelato jars work great!

Easel- Table top easels or standing easels, depending how you prefer to work, we have both styles available for loan or purchase
