Online Classes Supplies List:

5 colors of ACRYLIC PAINT: Quinacridone Magenta, Primary Yellow, Cerulean (or Cyan), Mars Black and Titanium White. 

Two brushes, large and small. I like natural bristle round brushes, around 14 and 3, or whatever’s close. You can always use more brushes if you want, but I’d recommend those two as a minimum. 

9x12” pad of watercolor paper. Canson XL is inexpensive and very reliable. Masking tape and a board for the paper are nice options although not absolutely necessary. 

I usually order online from I like the Blick Studio brand best for the magenta and yellow paint, and Liquitex Basics brand for the cerulean, black and white - these are less expensive options for students. Blick sells both brands of paint and also brushes and the Canson paper, palettes (consider palette paper), tape and lots more. And those are just my favorites, other brands  that you can buy at your local art supply or craft store work too.

Palette - can be an actual palette from an art supply store, or a piece of cardboard with palette paper or freezer paper taped on, or a plain dinner plate or pie tin. 

Tupperware container or bowl for water, and a rag.
