Supply List for this workshop:

·        Brushes - rounds with good points, sizes 2,4, 6 and a mop brush, flat brush, or bigger brush for washes (synthetics are fine, just no plastic fiber brushes). Anything that you already have and like.

·        Palette - something that has some wells and flat areas for mixing.

·        Painting board - something like a piece of thin masonite, sheet of plastic, drawing board, etc. that is slightly bigger than your half sheet of paper.

·        Two water jars.

·        Pencil, ruler, and a pair of scissors.
