Watercolor Class Supply List
Please note: Students are responsible for their own supplies. Please come to class prepared.
I order from www.dickblick.com or www.jerrysartarama.com. Although Michaels is good in a pinch, I suggest ordering your supplies from either of these two sites for better quality, selection and price. ALSO: I realize building inventory can be daunting. I try to keep the costs to a minimum. If you need to cut corners, please do not compromise the quality of your brushes or paper…you will regret it. Also, I am very willing to share my supplies for the first class, so if you would prefer to order the supplies after the first class, that is fine with me!
BRUSHES: Artegria Brushes. This 10-pack set that can be ordered on Amazon. I am amazed how well they work for the price. It’s a great starter pack.
• Wash Brush (1.5 – 2 inches)
**These brushes are enough to start. As the class progresses, you may find you want additional brushes, but to start you won’t need more than the brushes listed. Do not compromise on your bushes. The quality of the brush is very important.
PAINT: (*tubes): Please use either Winsor Newton - professional grade - NOT COTMAN, M. Graham, or Daniel Smith - you can mix the brands if necessary. If the tube size varies, get the small tubes...watercolor paint goes a long way!
• Ultramarine Blue
• Cerulean Blue
• Burnt Sienna
• Burnt Umber
• Cadmium Red
• Cobalt Blue
• Yellow Ochre
PAPER: High quality paper is imperative. I suggest Arches 140 Cold Press. You can buy these in blocks or individual sheets. If you choose to buy a block of the Arches, please get 16x20. Another option is to purchase a 22 inch x 30 inch sheet at the studio for $8.00 which should be enough for at least 4 paintings.
• A portfolio to transport you work to and from class. Doesn’t have to be fancy, just something to protect your work between classes. Cloth portfolios are good and light weight!
• Plastic Watercolor Palette I recommend John Pike (my favorite) or Creative Marek - 40 well watercolor palette with Cover – Don’t use the small ones, you will just get frustrated.
• Paper Towels
• Blue Painters Tape
• Small Spray Bottle
• Miskit Liquid Frisket or masking fluid.
• Support Board - Gatorboard is great. It is lightweight and durable. You’ll have to order online. Jerry’s Artarama has 16x24 boards>
Instuctor: Robyn Iarrobino. Robyn has over 35 years experience in painting with a heavy concentration in watercolor. She is an award winning artist and showed her work in numberous national watercolor exhibits.
