I will be painting and demonstrating in acrylic. For a small fee ($10) you can use my paints during the workshop.

Please bring the minimum supplies listed below as well as any other paints, brushes, etc. you typically use.

Acrylic Paints: Minimum colors include all primaries (red, yellow, blue, black, white).  Naples yellow, yellow ochre, purple, orange, magenta, sap green, burnt sienna, alizarin crimson and turquoise are good extras.  

Brushes – two rounds approx. sizes #4 and #12 or larger, one large flat or filbert approx. #10.  Long handled brushes are typically used for acrylic. For large canvases you may want even bigger brushes.
