Raw umber and yellow ochre are also good neutrals, (or bring what you have) Note- I recommend heavy body acrylics rather than Liquitex basics, which are too thin.
Palette and palette knife (tupperware, wet paper towel and wax paper is a good self made, stay wet palette.)

Canvas panels and at least one prestretched canvas, at least 11x14 inches
Artist tape, paper towels, spray bottle
Optional:
Acrylic mediums (not essential for beginners -acrylic glazing medium is good for thinning acrylics, matt or gloss medium-good for impasto and collage)
Paper (Bristol, Strathmore 300 or any heavier paper for wet mediums)
Gesso (for preparing paper, surfaces to paint on)
Keep a sketchbook!!!!!

Hand Lettering – Italic Calligraphy with Elissa Barr

Supplies will be provided for the first class and instructor will review the supply list at that time. Feel free to bring any calligraphy materials that you already have that you like to use.

 

Suggested supplies

Pen nibs - Speedball C1, C2, C3 and Mitchell 2½, 3, 3½

Nib holder - your choice of Speedball plastic OR double-ended nib holder

Note of caution on hand-turned wooden holders - they are beautiful to look at BUT need to be selected in person to avoid ones that are too long or too heavy, too skinny or too fat

Ruler - an 18-inch clear plastic such as a C-thru or Westcott is nice, or any other ruler that is 18-inches or longer

T-square - optional…this is very useful if you have or decide to purchase a drawing board with a metal straight edge. I recommend an acrylic edged T-square rather than metal, as there is less chance of getting marks on the paper from the metal.

Mechanical pencil - thin lead is preferred over thick (0.05)

Ink - Higgins Eternal OR Pelikan 4001. Please avoid acrylic inks for now…I prefer that you start with BLACK ink

Tape - 3M Scotch Magic Removal Tape #811

Paper - your choice of:

John Neal Books Practice paper without gridlines - #P20 11x17

Strathmore Drawing - 300 (yellow cover) 11x14 OR 14x17

Paper & Ink Arts - blank pad #pablnk 11x17

Other useful supplies - a writing surface…nice to have something smooth to do your work on such as a piece of foam board larger than your paper; a rag or paper towels to clean your nibs; a water container

Suppliers - both of these suppliers will be posting my class supply lists on their website

magenta, permanent green light, pthalo blue (green shade), ultramarine blue, burnt

sienna, titanium white, ivory black. (Or bring what you have)

Palette and palette knife (Large flat tupperware, wet paper towel and wax paper is a

good self made, stay wet palette, palette pads and bought stay wet palette also good)

Brushes - 3 to 6 of differing sizes and shape, filberts and squares, plus one flat 1” wide

Canvas panels and at least one prestretched canvas, at least 11x14 inches

Artist tape, paper towels, spray bottle

Mixed media paper pad, at least 11x14 although the bigger the better!

Pencils, charcoal if you have some

There are many acrylic mediums that are fun to play with. Gel medium works well as a

glue for collage, spray paint medium is good for spraying out of a bottle. These can get

quite expensive so you can give me a materials fee of $20 and I can supply some to get

us started, until you find what you like. Same with gesso. Or if you would rather bring

what you have that is fine too.

“Take an object. Do something to it. Do something else to it. Do something else to it.”
