You can purchase your materials anywhere you wish, however I suggest Blick Art Materials and Jerry’s Artarama. Both have excellent stock and you can order online, usually with free shipping. Blick has a brick and mortar store in Tampa on Westshore Dr.


I suggest specific brands because I have used them in my other courses with good results, but you may purchase what you wish.



ONLY THIS PAINT – no other brand, please

Utrect Acrylic Color Theory set (available at Blick and on Amazon)



Canson XL Mix Media pad, 11x14”

Disposable palette pad, 16x12” or larger



Blick essentials Craft Value brush set (available at Blick for about $13) or Creative Mark (available at Jerry’s)


If you already have brushes or wish to purchase other brands, please be sure you buy soft bristle brushes such as for watercolor and a variety of profiles (at least one ½” flat and one #6 round and some smaller detail brushes).


Miscellaneous materials – required
