Materials List

OAoFA will provide Gamsol solvent, a Silicoil solvent container, a workstation including a chair, easel, palette, and taboret, and paper towels.  Students are asked to bring: 

Paint - Oil is preferred, but acrylic and/or watercolor is acceptable.  Minimum colors needed are burnt umber, ultramarine blue, titanium white, hansa yellow, alizarin permanent, and napthol red. Additional colors can be used but are not necessary as the instructor will make use of a limited palette.  All demonstrations will use oil paint.

Brushes - Each student should bring their own set of brushes.  It is difficult to list specific brush names and size numbers as each brand has its own guidelines.  In general, a student should have an assortment of both hog hair bristle and synthetic/natural sable brushes.  Two or three large hog hair bristle brushes, three to four medium size hog hair bristle brushes (filbert, flat or round), and four or five smaller synthetic or sable brushes for detailed work.  You may also include a "rigger", or a fine long-bristled brush designed for detail.  

Palette Knife - Bring at minimum one palette knife suitable for mixing paint, ideally one with a diamond shaped blade.  Additional palette knives can be brought for applying paint if preferred.

Painting Support -Please bring surfaces to paint on.  Two 8x10 canvas/wood panels and a 16x20" stretched canvas is recommended. 

Masterpiece Reference - Please bring a reference image of the masterpiece you want to paint to class.  We will talk about enlarging options the first class session in case the image is small in size.

Sketchbook or Notecards & Drawing Utensil - Bring a small sketchbook or 4x6 blank index cards to create thumbnail sketches and compositional studies.

Storage Bin - A storage bin of some sort similar to this Artbin box is recommended for carrying supplies to and from class.  

Clothing - An apron or old clothes is suggested as there is a high possibility of getting paint and/or solvent on clothes.  

Gloves - Disposable gloves are suggested but optional.  They can help keep your hands clean from paint and solvent.

Attitude - A positive attitude and willingness to try new things is always appreciated!
