Below I've listed supplies, with links to purchase them at Art Supply Wholesale in
Beverly. They're a local business with competitive pricing; you can buy in person

1. Paper: 100% cotton, 140 lb, cold press watercolor paper, preferably Arches
or Fabriano. Blocks or sheets. You can choose from one of the following options:
Arches watercolor pad, 140 lb, cold press, 100% cotton (9 x 12 inches or larger)*
2. Paints: tube paints (Winsor and Newton, Holbein, Daniel Smith, and M. Graham are good brands), any colors you like
3. Brushes: a round, size 10 or larger, and a flat, 3/4- or 1-inch-wide & any others you like
4. Palette: medium to large palette with large mixing area(s)
Totally optional: a small notebook & pencil, spray or mister bottle, an old credit card (for scraping), inexpensive palette knife
*Please do not purchase a watercolor pad by any other brand than Arches--these
pads aren't 100% cotton and you won't get the same results.
**A block is different from a pad because it is glued on all four sides.
I am looking forward to seeing you Monday, February 27!
Please email your instructor if you have any questions.
