Acrylic Painting II
Course Supply List.
- Acrylic paint - We will go over paint and paint qualities in class but for now bring
what you have and enjoy using. Include opaques and transparent colors, black, white
and the basic colors. You may use tube paints like at Craft Warehouse called Art
Advantage or Cheep. These are decent student grade paints that you can use in
abundance as well as Dick Blick Acrylics, Utrecht matte paints, Golden, Liquitex and
craft paints, depending on your familiarity with the colors and confidence in applying
them. I will encourage you to mix your own colors so I recommend including:
- a warm and a cool blue, such as ultramarine blue and cobalt blue
- a warm and a cool red, such as such as cadmium red medium and vermillion
- a warm and a cool yellow, such as Hansa yellow and cad yellow medium
- Brushes - an assortment of flats (2", 1", 1/2") rounds, a fan brush,
and inexpensive chip
brushes (white bristles from the hardware store) and any scrappy brushes you have
- Paper or other supports: I like using a pad of Bristol paper at least 11x14. Strathmore
Aquarious II is another excellent "printing making" paper that is wonderful.
also choose watercolor paper or canvas boards or stretched canvas as well.
- A mixed media sketch book. I prefer the large 11x14 and the 9x12. Look at the weight
the paper and choose the journal with the heaviest paper. I want you to take notes,
down ideas, and paint in your sketchbook and glue papers down on pages.
- Exacto knife. I like the Snap-Off Blades
- Matte medium
- Gloss medium
- White gesso
- Black gesso
- Oil pastels-especially black, white, red, yellow
- Mark making tools like graphite sticks, colored pencils, markers, etc
- Tracing paper
- Transfer paper, like Saral
