Monday–Friday, 10 AM–3 PM

July 29–August 2 (5 days)

La Jolla Studio

$230/250 + $5 mat. fee

 

MATERIALS: Faber-Castel PITT Artist pens, waterproof, black. There’s a pack of four that has nib sizes superfine, fine, medium, and brush. (Be sure it is not the four-pack that contains thick pens used for calligraphy.) One 9” x 12” watercolor pad; 90–140 lbs. 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. 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”). 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, Niji is the best brand. If you have a favorite photo of an animal or person or from your travels, and it’s a nice big, clear shot, bring it along. If not, there will be photos supplied.

 

For outdoors: a folding chair, hat, water bottle, and sunscreen
