PAINTING CLASSES .... PAT BLAIR, Artist/Instructor

OIL PAINTING SUPPLY LIST FOR THIS CLASS

Canvas

Purchase 2 inexpensive painter's canvases at any art supply location.  Choose one 10 x 14" and one 16 x 20" .  You may choose to use a canvas board rather than a stretched canvas.  This is OK for our beginning purposes but if you want to use a finer canvas to frame probably you want a museum stretched canvas or a wrap around canvas.  These are pre-gesso treated.

 Stretching your own canvas is O.K. if you are experienced but this will not be covered in this class.

Painting Palette  - I recommend a paper palette.

The Canson Paper Palette* is made from 40 sheets of disposable poly-coated paper with a thick backing. Each paint palette is great for oil and acrylics.      12" x 16". 

*Any brand will do as long as it is made for oil or acrylic paints.

This will save your clothes and it makes it easy to dispose of the mess!

Brushes

Don't purchase many brushes.  You will need very few in the beginning and as you become more involved in painting there will be the time to "purchase as needed".  Beginning requirements:

4 brushes.  buy 2 inexpensive bristle oil brushes:  [1] = 2 inch [1] = 1 inch

 buy 2    inexpensive sable oil brushes: [1] = 1/2  inch [1] 1/4 inch

Purchase a palette knife  for mixing your oil paints.

Thinner and Brush Cleaner

Purchase  a small container of brush solvent (non-toxic) at any art supply store such as Michaels, Central Graphics, etc. These may be purchased in small cans or jars.

Purchase a tiny bottle of painter's varnish and also a tiny bottle of painters oil.
