• 1 small pot or tube of gesso (high-grade gesso can often be very expensive, so
   lower-grade gesso works fine without compromising too much quality)

There are a variety of types of palettes on the market (plastic palettes, ceramic
palettes, and wood palettes…

*Paint Purchasing Clinic will be given on the 1st day of class. A complete set
of paint will be required for the 2nd Class.
Purchasing Clinic: Instructor will look over everyone’s old/used paint/brushes on 1st
day to see if it will be appropriate for class use and to decide what other paints you
may need to buy to have the required set of paints

Purchasing Paints:
Paints come in variety of brands varying greatly in quality.
-A high quality acrylic paint is Golden brand, although it can be quite expensive,
Liquitex is great too, but also on the pricey side. A good affordable brand is
Stevensen brand. I welcome you to experiment with lower-quality paints like
Acrylex or some of the other student-grade paints you will see on the market…you
will know a brand is student-grade if it is significantly cheaper then the others)
although I caution you to try only a few colours of these paints before purchasing a
whole set.
     * You will not need to purchase any black

Students: Occasionally Extended Studies must change an instructor from what was advertised. Because that may cause a
change to the course supply list, we recommend that you wait to purchase supplies for your first night until about one week
prior to class start and that you purchase your remaining supplies after your first class (unless your course is a weekend
workshop). Keep your supplies in their original packaging and keep all receipts until your instructor confirms the
supplies will be used (in case any need to be returned).
