The Museum will provide the copper wire and a selection of clasps to choose from.

Drawing and Painting
Students who have taken the class can bring the materials they have been working with.
If students choose to paint, supplies will be discussed on the first day of class. For the first day of class (for both classes) bring:
- Stick charcoal
- 18 x 24 drawing pad
- Erasers (both kneaded and rubber)
- ½” thick charcoal
- Compressed charcoal
- a watercolor set of student’s choice
- water basin
- 12” x 16” block of ARCHES watercolor, cold press
- Viva paper towels
For Beginner Students:
- 18 x 24 Drawing paper tablet
- sketching set (includes soft vine charcoal, compressed charcoal, conte, graphite pencils, white plastic eraser, kneaded eraser, pencil sharpener)
- chamois cloth or cotton rag
workable spray fixative (optional)
For Intermediate Students:
- Any preferred drawing media (i.e. graphite, charcoal, colored pencil, etc.)
-Surfaces: 1 canvas, canvas board, or sheet of canvas paper. Must be primed in advance. You may also work on a primed panel, if you prefer.
–Brushes: Make sure you are selecting brushes that are labeled “for oils and acrylics.” (Stay away from watercolor brushes!) There are lots of brands of brushes–you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg, but I would stay away from the cheapest line available. Whatever brand you choose, pick at least one small, medium, and large size in flat and round (6 total).
-Palette Knife: Metal palette knife with a diamond or tear-drop shaped tip. Get the kind that has a bend in it—not the kind that looks like a butter knife.
–Palette: Hard wooden or plastic palette with a completely flat surface (no cups!). You can use a sheet of plexiglass or glass (from an old picture frame, for example), just make sure you clean it and wrap any sharp edges in tape before bringing it to class.
–Paints: For beginners, I recommend Winton brand. Gamblin, Old Holland, and Winsor Newton are good quality brands but a little pricier.
- titanium white
- burnt umber
- raw umber
- burnt sienna
- raw sienna
- yellow ochre or mars yellow
- cadmium yellow
- naples yellow
- cadmium red-medium or light, or both
- ultramarine blue
- sap green
- 3 glass jars with lids
- Refined linseed oil
- Turpenoid or other odorless turpentine substitute
- Damar varnish
-Cloth Rags: Please bring cloth rags as opposed to paper towels. They are much less wasteful.
