Drawing: A4 or A3 cartridge paper, soft 2B pencil, kneadable eraser and sharpener. (A small flat bristle brush is helpful to brush away rubbings when erasing a mistake)
Painting: You will need the following paint colours initially and inexpensive sets by Pebeo and Reeves are fine to begin with. Other mixed media supplies will be available for class use eg oil pastels, charcoal pencils and sharpie fineliners.
A warm red eg cadmium red, a cool red eg alizarin crimson, a warm yellow eg cadmium yellow, a cool yellow eg lemon yellow a warm blue eg cobalt blue, a cool blue eg ultramarine blueBurnt umber and Burnt Sienna. Once you have begun to see colours that you like you can move to better quality paint, paper and brushes.
You will also need a palette for mixing paint, or a plain white plate works also works well. Your paper ideally needs to be 300gsm rather than 200gsm weight to take lots of water without buckling. A3 size is good and A4 for smaller scale exercises. You also need masking tape to hold it down we have some boards here to use. Boards need to be put back at the end of the session. We have water jars and hairdryers and table easels on-site. You need a set of brushes – a size 12 or 14 round or larger if you have one, a size 6 round and a ¾ or 1” flat for the term to keep your initial outlay down, or bring what you already have. A notebook and pen for notes.
