Drawing: A4 or A3 cartridge paper, soft 2B pencil, kneadable eraser and shrpener. (A small flat bristle brush is helpful to brush away rubbings when erasing a mistake)
You will need the following paint colours initially: we have supplies for sale under materials if you want to avoid running around for supplies orders are required at least 72hrs before term starts.
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 blue
Burnt umber and Burnt Sienna
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.
We will have some heavier paper available by the sheet at a reasonable charge, for those who have not bought a materials or paper & paint pack. You also 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 and soft 2B pencil for sketching and a kneadable eraser is useful for softly erasing artist quality paper.
We have supplies in our store for drawing supplies, paper, paint and brushes to get you started.
