Paintbrushes: I use short flat brushes. They are also called “brights.” Do not bring long flats, which look like short flat/brights. I recommend either the Dick Blick Scholastic OR Robert Simmons Titanium, both available on dickblick.com. Bring one size 12 and one size 20 of the Blick Scholastic Wonder White Brushes (long blue handles) OR bring one size 4 and one size 12 of the Robert Simmons Titanium brushes (long silver handles).
Fineline precision applicators (gauge 20)
Easel: If you have a collapsible table easel (aluminum or wood) please bring it. If you don’t have an easel, bring a large roll of paper towels.
MISC: Paper towels, baby wipes, apron, container for water
Reference photos of subjects to that you’d like to paint on the second day stored on your smart phone or tablet (like an iPad), devices fully charged. If you have an old family photo, take a photo of that photo and store it onto your device. Photos with high contrast (lights and darks) is recommended. If you don’t have a photo, I will have many photo references that you can use.
If you bring paints as recommended and use your own paints, there is no kit fee. If you bring paints but don’t bring the ones I recommend and you end up using my paints, the fee will be $15 (to be paid to the instructor by cash or check at time of class).
