Supply List

Note: All regular-priced supplies are available at 20% off from Art Department for this class. 

Watercolor supplies are an upfront investment. The brushes and paint last a long time, so don’t be daunted by the cost. Buy the best you can afford. Definitely invest in professional quality paints such as Windsor and Newton, M. Graham or Daniel Smith brands. The small 5 ml Windsor and Newton size is perfect if you currently own no paints. The best watercolor paper is 100% cotton 140 lb cold press. The 100% cotton matters more than the brand. See the list below for specific paint colors and supplies. If you already own watercolor supplies and know what works for you, bring what you like, and similar colors to what’s listed below.
(If you have a restricted budget, you could buy the three primaries for this class consisting of: cobalt blue, the Pyrrol Scarlet (or Alizarin Crimson), and the raw sienna.)

Paper: Block or pad of 100% cotton cold press 140lb 9x12 OR a decent practice paper pad like Fabriano Studio Watercolor Cold Press 25% cotton 9x12. A third option is to buy 1 big sheet of 100% cotton cold press and cut it into 6 sheets 10x11 sheets.
