Various supplies needed:
- Pencil with eraser
- Watercolor paints. You don't need to purchase expensive paints; even a basic watercolor set with primary colors will be great for this class. If you are looking to purchase new paints, I will send along a list of my preferred budget-friendly paints and other materials.
- Watercolor brushes. 1 small size watercolor brush (0, 1, 2 size) and 1 medium brush (4, 6, or 8)
- Watercolor or mixed media paper. (If you need a recommendation, we love Canson XL paper or Strathmore 400 series. Both are very budget friendly and come in different sizes.) You can also buy pre-cut watercolor postcards, such as from Strathmore.
- Palette, disposable plate, or take-out container lid for mixing colors
- Water cup and paper towels
- Something round to trace, such as a roll of masking tape or a bowl
- Optional - A ruler or something with a straight edge
- Optional - other media such as colored pencils, gel pens, markers, etc!
