Students are encouraged to bring whatever materials they feel most comfortable working in. If you already have watercolor, gouache, oil, or acrylic paints there is no need to go out and buy more. If you are starting from scratch, a basic starter sets of your chosen media will do. Oil painters, please be sure to purchase odorless mineral spirits. Whatever your media of choice please bring a surface to paint on! Oil and acrylic artists can bring canvas or wood panels to work on. Watercolor or gouache artists, Watercolor paper can be expensive, but you also get what you pay for.
