BRING THE MEDIUM AND SUPPLIES YOU ENJOY THE MOST…CANVAS, COLLAGE ETC. WHTAEVER TURNS YOU ON. I AM THERE TO HELP, ENCOURAGE, CRITIQUE AND EXCITE YOUR CREATIVE SPIRIT!

TAYLOR IKIN YUPO WORKSHOP
PAPER: YUPO paper This is the only surface I have used for years. My
process depends on the unique qualities of this fabulous synthetic surface. Bring several sheets of medium or heavy weight Yupo paper.
BRUSHES: I like BIG brushes 36 rounds and 2” flat. I use a 2” flat brush rather than the regular round brush. You may try mine first if you wish Bring what you have.
PAINTS: I prefer American Journey Paints by Cheap Joe’s but bring any paints that work for you and make you happy. It does not matter what brand if it is something you enjoy. I will have tubes of American Journey Paints for you to try, compliments of Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff in Boone, NC. They are my paint of choice and yours to enjoy during the workshop.

REFERENCE IMAGES OR SKETCHES:
Bring your own reference material and pictures or paint as you go…it doesn’t matter. I will demo for you.
Painting on YUPO is mostly a studio event for me. I am focused on the environment and frequently favor landscapes and the surrounding trees etc.
STUFF: Paper towels, cover for the table (Dollar Store shower curtain will do)Kleenex, spray bottle, water container, artist tape, paper bag for trash, mat knife, brushes, pallet etc… anything important to your painting experience. Pencils, erasers and anything else that makes you happy and focused!
PALLET: I use a John Pike lid…I like it better when there are no wells and there is a lot of space for mixing your own colors. Paper plates will do as well… so bring what you have at home.
SUPPORT BOARDS TO HOLD YOUR YUPO:
20 X 26 will be good, several needed. Foam core is what I also use. Cardboard will do if it is all that you have.
YUPO: Great for watercolor, acrylic, crayon, pastel, graphic, pen and ink. Bring
it all and try it!
