Pastels Class Supply List

Students will need to bring the following to class: 

  • Pastels- A variety of hard and soft pastels and a small set of pastel pencils. (include a mid-toned grey pastel pencil)  Bring a variety of values and colors of a good quality brand. There are many brands out there. I like Sennelier ½ stick set but there are other professional grade brands. Contact me directly if you are not sure. 
  • 16 x 20 foam core board to tape paper to.
  • 2” wide roll of masking tape
  • UArt  Sanded Paper - 400 or 320 grit (buff color). Comes in 10 packs of  9 x 12 or 12 x 18 sheets 
  • Small container of Gamsol or Denatured Alcohol (for underpainting) 
  • Watercolors  or Acrylics (for underpainting) – and a mixing surface. A simple student grade set is fine if you don’t already have some. 
  • A few inexpensive brushes in a variety of  sizes.
  • Small sketchbook and pencil. 
  • Paper towels (shop towels are great!)
