Must Haves Supplies:
Acrylic Paint- We recommend a set of Liquitex Basics for those just learning to use acrylics, or Heavy Body Professional acrylics for those who have experience with the medium.

Canvas- 2 canvases no larger than 12×16 no smaller than 8×10. 1 canvas no larger than 16×20 and no smaller than 12×16 (these can be boards, panels, or stretched canvas)

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

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
