We also have a need based scholarship for children made possible by the Dorothy Sacco Memorial Fund.
Youth scholarships cover 50% of the class fee.
Watercolor Supply List
*Required supplies. All other supplies are optional.
* Watercolor paints in the colors listed below. I recommend buying watercolors in the tubes, but you’re welcome to buy watercolor pan paints.
I recommend the following brands: Grumbacher Academy Artists' Watercolor.25 fl oz (7.5 ml) tubes, or Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolors (8 ml tubes), or American Journey Artists' Watercolors. You can find these watercolors online at cheapjoes.com. You can also find watercolor paints at local art stores, such as Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or JoAnn Fabrics.

*One white, plastic watercolor palette. Please don’t buy a metal palette.
*Eraser - General’s white eraser and General’s kneaded erasers are nice.
*Hand-Held Pencil Sharpener
*Plastic container to hold water. If you look in the decorative art section of any craft store, you’ll find a brush “washer.” This is simply a water bin with two separate compartments to hold water. Or you can use an old, plastic food container to hold water.
*One roll of paper towel or small rag
Canvas roll-up brush case to store your brushes - It’s important to store your brushes in one of these because you don’t want to damage your brushes. This is optional.
*Students should bring reference material to class. Reference material may consist of real-life subject matter, such as flowers, plants, twigs, branches, and leaves. If you’re unable to bring real-life references, then please bring photos or pictures of these items.
*Watercolor paint brushes as follows:
I recommend purchasing the Loew Cornell Series 4000 (beige/pink handles) American Painter OR Loew Cornell Series 7000 (clear handles) Golden Taklon watercolor brushes. A comparable brand is acceptable.
