Acrylic Painting for Beginners and Beyond Beginners

Please bring to class: Artist's acrylic tube paints in the following colors:

Cadmium red medium Alizarin Crimson Hue Permanent OR Acra Crimson Cadmium Yellow Medium Lemon Yellow OR Yellow Light Hansa French Ultramarine Blue Cerulean Blue Titanium White Y ellow Oxide Burnt Sienna Burnt Umber

For convenience, you may also wish to include the following colors if you don't care to mix them from the primary colors above:
Sap Green OR Hookers Green Cadmium Orange Dioxazine Purple

Note: The suggested brand of paint is Liquitex. If you already own other brands of artist's paints, such as Grumbacher or Winsor & Newton, it's ok to use them as well. Most acrylic brands are compatible with one another. But if you must purchase any colors, please buy Liquitex. Please do NOT use craft paint (the kind that comes in small plastic bottles and is sold under names such as Folk Art, Delta, etc.) Craft paints are not suitable for fine art painting.

Brushes: #10 or #12 flat #6 or #8 flat or bright #6 or #8 filbert #4 or #6 round

Note: Purchase brushes that are designed for use with acrylics, such as synthetic nylon or Taklon brushes. Bristle brushes may also be used but they give a "scratchier" appearance. Avoid sable brushes, and brushes made only for watercolors and oils.
Acrylic gesso -- white Container for water, such as a large clean margarine tub, or Brush Basin Canvas or canvas board, 16x20

Palette -- you may use a clean Styrofoam tray from the grocery store (such as the kind meat and some vegetables are sold in), OR a shallow pan or tray made of plastic, metal or ceramic, OR a Styrofoam plate. If your budget permits, a Masterson Sta-Wet Palette (approximate cost: $14-17) is a worthwhile investment.

Graphite pencil

Kneaded eraser

Palette knife -- plastic is ok

Paper towels

Plant mister or spray bottle for water

Watercolor paper, canvas paper, acrylic paper, or plain white copier paper (to serve as "scratch" paper)

An old shirt, smock or apron to protect your clothes while painting

Before unwrapping any new supplies, please bring to first class for instructor's approval in case returns or exchanges are needed.
