Principles of Painting 24420A

 Please note class dates: 1/31-2/7, 4/3-5/8. Spring break 4/17

Color, light, shade and form are among the basic painting principles you learn in this introductory course. Using acrylics, oils or the new water-based oil paints, or other painting medium of your choice, we cover the skills, tools and techniques needed to begin a lifetime of painting.



Table Easel
Canvas Paper Pad
(either paper or board or plastic)
Filbert brushes sizes 1,3,5,7, one bright size 10 (suitable for oil or acrylic-I prefer bristle, but you may want to add a sable/sableine or two) The numbers may change brand to brand, but get a variety of sizes from small to large. You can also go to Home Depot and get a natural bristle brush there as well in a very large size.
Painting knife (bent at the neck- not straight) any shape/size should feel comfortable to you and be a little flexible at least (they  make many sizes and shapes, all are ok)

Sometimes they sell paints in sets that are cheaper. If they have close to what is here, you can then just buy additional colors to supplement the list. If you are unsure of any colors, or have any questions, call me. Or the sales clerk can sometimes help as well.
