$275/295 (includes model one day)
MATERIALS: Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pens, waterproof, Black. There’s a pack of four that has nib sizes superfine, fine, medium, and brush. (*Be sure they are not the four-pack that has thick pens used for calligraphy). One 9” x 12” watercolor pad; from 90 lb. to 140 lb. is good.
Watercolor: If you have watercolors, just bring what you have. If you want to buy some, you can get the Prang brand, 16 standard colors set, or splurge and get a travel Winsor & Newton set with professional colors. The sets usually come with a brush. I recommend you get an additional brush (a #6 or 8 round) and a square wash brush (1/2 inch). If you have tubes of paint, be sure to set up your palette before class. Bring a water container. Feel free to bring any pens or paper you would like to try. If you would like to get a travel water brush, the Niji brand is best. If you have a favorite photo of an animal, a person, or one from your travels, and it’s a nice big, clear shot, bring it along; you may get a chance to paint it.
For outdoors: bring a folding chair, hat, water bottle, and sunscreen on the days we go outside.
