For Pastel Painting:


-A set of SOFT PASTEL STICKS as large as the student is able to acquire. (No Oil Pastels)
-At least one of each of the following colors: black, white and gray, in either the soft pastels, Nu-pastels or pastel pencils for a value study project.
-Two sheets of sanded pastel paper, any type that the student prefers. 
-BACKBOARDS on which to mount your pastel paper at the easel. Foam Core, masonite and plywood all make good backboards. (1/8" to 1/4"). If cutting a board, cut slightly larger than the size of paper you intend to work on. Cardboard will not be sturdy enough.
-An old medium-size bristle oil/acrylic paint brush. We'll use it to take pastel off our paintings for special effects. 
-Something to mount your paper to the backboard/foam core. You can use accountant's LEDGER CLIPS and/or bulldog clips or 1 inch masking tape. 
-A portable EASEL that tilts forward. Table easels are also good. If you are traveling and/or can't afford one, you can work with your paper on the flat table surface. 
-A can of spray workable FIXATIVE. (For those flying in, you can omit this and borrow from local students)
-Paper Towels
-Apron or overshirt that can get dirty.
-Photos to paint from

Optional great supplies:

- A set of your favorite paints like oil, acrylic or watercolor, brushes, palette, etc. Contact ARTspot for more specifics on non-pastel supply options.  They are always happy to help and can walk you through what you’ll need to get started or to add to your collection.
