Examples of supplies lists for the 26 weeks of Intensive explorations

Go back to class: 26 weeks of intensive explorations

Here are some lists of supplies of what you can expect to use for the 26 weeks of intensive explorations Online class

Depending on what media you want to train more in, you won’t need all of these supplies. For example if you are more interested in watercolor painting, you can ignore the acrylic list. I recommend you to try to use what you already have as most of the classes allow for the use of various medium.


Paper and canvas


If you would rather work on canvas:  A few primed canvas: 12×12 or 16×16 inches are a good size. It won’t take you too long to paint but you still have enough space to work on details. You will still need a bit of paper for the few classes that are more about drawing, ink or watercolor.

You will need just one color of gouache or tempera paint for the ink resist class. If you don’t have any, try to buy a light color so you can see it on the white of your paper or canvas but so it would not leave a too visible color stain.


  • A few colors of oil pastels to use as a resist with watercolor on yupo paper
  • A few colors of dry pastels, the least expensive would be to buy a box of pastels and start from there.



  • A few watercolor tubes or a pan set. Don’t buy too many colors as you can mix most of them.
  • A few brushes, if you don’t have any I would try with a simple set like this one: Round sizes 2, 6, 10, and Flat size 1/2″ and 1″




A few water based felt-tips markers if you want to try the self portrait technique with the mirror.
