This workshop is the perfect introduction to painting. Maybe you are only thinking about trying out painting but you are not ready to invest in materials, this is a workshop where you can try it out before purchasing anything. You have the option to just pay a material fee and I will provide the materials. We will spend 3 consecutive Saturday mornings learning how to use materials while painting simple objects from observation.  No pressure, it will be fun and you will have a better idea if it is a path you want to pursue further after this workshop!

Or, if you’d rather not pay a $25 material fee (payable on first day) because you already have materials, here is a list of materials I would like you to bring to class:

  • A pad of canvas paper or multiple supports to paint on, i.e. canvas
  • Masking tape
  • A disposable palette to put paint on (freezer paper is fine, you can tape it to the table)
  • brushes of various sizes
  • A palette knife or two
  • Paper towels
  • Acrylic or oil paints in the following colors:
  • Black
  • White – a large tube
  • Yellow (cad Yellow Light or a yellow that just looks yellow, not orangey)
  • Cadmium Red light (or some really orangey red)
  • Alizaron Crimson or magenta (a red that is a little purple)
  • Ultramarine Blue
  • Pthalo Blue (green shade if indicated)

*For inexpensive but good quality paints I recommend Dayler Rowney Georgian Oil Colors or Chroma A2 Student Acrylics. Both are available online at Dick Blick
