Supplies for Painting Workshops and Classes
Click here for a PRINTABLE PAINTING SUPPLY LIST.. (It can take several minutes to load!) You do not need to buy everything shown! With black and white, paint, a brush, and a pad of canvas paper, you could work for years! There are additional supplies, like household items, on the list that are not pictured below. To make it easy for you to find them, most of the supplies include a link to Amazon which provides a small commission to me for purchases made. I greatly appreciate your support, but please feel free to purchase supplies anywhere. These are all products that I use (and love) myself.
Large Tube of White
Solvent – Gamsol
Canvas or Linen
I use double-primed linen for my paintings, but for starting out canvas pads are handy and much less expensive.
The top easel is perfect for tabletop work in classes and for outdoor work for shorter people. If you are tall, choose the lower easel of the two shown above. I've found this specific easel to be the only one of its type that works if you're tall! These are not rugged easels, but they are lightweight and serve the purpose for the lowest price I've found anywhere.
Gloves, Tape, Plyers
The Golden Open acrylic paints stay wet longer and behave more like oils. This is a nice starter set.
