All students will need to bring the following each week

  • Paint palette (at least A4 size, flat (no wells). Tiles, perspex or old white plates work well.
  • Rags or paper towels
  • Masking tape or bulldog clips
  • Selection of cheap bristle brushes – flat, round, small and large sizes.
  • Sketchbook or visual diary for drawing ideas and compositions (A4 is fine)
  • Something to draw with (eg Pencils, charcoal)
