You will need a canvas of any size (we use 16×20 or 12×16), acrylic paint consisting of red, blue, yellow, black and white. The acrylic paints we use are from Curry’s and we find it is good student-grade paint. The exact names read on our 2L bottles are; bright red (NOT the orange pigment), bright yellow or cadmium yellow, phthalo blue and/or ultramarine blue, black or carbon black and titanium white. You will need an assortment of synthetic brushes consisting of detailed #0 or #2, medium flat/round #4 and a flat large brush#12 or #16. A water cup and paper towel to rinse and dry off your brushes.
