Watercolor / Mixed Media

Bring any supplies you already have collected; and here are a few more.

We will be discussing supplies at our first meeting.

Please do not go out and buy a huge collection of paints.

  • Paper:

I strongly recommend us using a good quality rag paper, such as Arches or Fabriano. 140 # cold press and Lanaquarelle hot press 140#. For this class; a minimum of 4 @ 22” x 30” sheets of each; we will tear down as needed

The most economical way to buy paper is in packs of 25 sheets of 22″ x 30″. Please no blocks.

  • Paint:

USE GOOD PAINT!
