Jared’s Recommended Supplies
My preferred brand is Daniel Smith and some Holbein. Student-grade paints can also work, but can be a little more difficult. Ideally you will have a warm and cool of each primary color and some earth tones. Here are my suggestions:
- Cadmium Yellow Light
- Cadmium Orange (if you want a convenience color)
- Cadmium Red Med or Scarlet
- Ultramarine Blue
- Cobalt Blue
- Cerulean (not as important, I prefer Holbeins)
- Yellow Ochre
- Raw Sienna
- Burnt Sienna
- Burnt Umber
- Paynes Grey or Neutral Tint
- White Gouache (titanium, I use M Graham, W&N is easier to get though). May also like a white pastel instead or white prisma color or wax colored pencil.
- I’ll be using a Folio Palette.
- Paper towels
- Faber Castell 9000 pencils or any you have
- Clear ruler or drafting triangle
What to expect
Art Toolkit workshops are live events that take place on Zoom. During the workshop, you will have a chance to ask the instructor questions. After the workshop, we’ll provide you with a link to a recording to review on your own time (viewable for at least six months).
We’ll be in touch a week before the workshop with instructions for connecting and additional information. Please remember to adjust for your time zone. Tickets are non-refundable, but we may be able to transfer your ticket to another student if there is a waitlist.
We present our workshops with automated captions. If you wish to request additional accommodations, please let us know in advance.
