Suggested Materials for the Studio (Weeks 2-6)


Drawing and Sketching
Bring your favorite drawing materials and keep in mind we'll be working quickly at first, like gesture drawings, to loosen up our hands and minds.

Suggested:

Charcoal (Vine and compressed)
White eraser (no pink erasers: they leave pink marks)
Water cup
Cheap 1" and 2" brushes
Sidewalk chalk
Color pastel set (for finishing touches)
Newsprint pad
Heavy drawing or watercolor paper

Painting (this is a water-media only class)
The Basics:
One primed canvas at least 24" x 24" and up to 36" x 48"
Tubed or jarred paint set containing a minimum of the 3 Primary and 3
Secondary colors + Titanium White
Your favorite brushes
Foam brushes - great for texture and glazing
Cheap brushes - can leave really wonderful "wave-like" marks
Palette knife(s)
Palette
Empty plastic containers (for water)
Old rags (cut up t-shirts are far better than paper towels and less wasteful)

Extras:
Sandpaper, turkey baster, plastic spoons, bubble wrap, plastic bags, etc.
Any other tools of your choice that can leave a mark, scrape, peel, or texturize the surface.
