We provide: all the painting surfaces you’ll need for the exercises will be provided, as well as handouts. No brushes* are needed in this class; we use palette knives to mix and apply paint. This keeps colors cleaner and means we can work without brush-cleaning solvents. 
What you need to bring
  • Two palette knives:
    a small one, 1-1/8” in length (such as Cheap Joe’s item CJPK40)
    and a medium-size one, 2-7/8” in length (item CJPK50)
  • Richeson Grey Matters Paper Palette, size 12x16”
  • Oil Paint: Quinacridone Red 37ml or Naphthol Red 37ml, Cadmium Yellow Light 37 ml or Indian Yellow 37 ml, Phthalo Blue 37 ml or Ultramarine Blue 37 ml, Ivory or Mars Black 37 ml, and Titanium White 150 ml. We recommend Gamblin; the 1980 series is a good value “student grade” paint made with the same pigments as the “artist grade” paints.
  • for oil painters: a drying medium such as Liquin Impasto, Old Masters Maroger, Old Masters Venetian Wax Medium, or Gamblin’s Galkyd Gel (in a tube).
  • A sketchbook or notebook (please note that you can use oil paint in a regular sketchbook, which is a useful way to keep color notes and written notes together)
  • A roll of paper towels. 
  • A pencil or pen.
  • Lunch, snacks, and water to drink. 
*For Non-Oil Painters: Since Aimee is primarily an oil painter, and oil paint has the advantage of staying wet on the palette, the demos and examples are in oil; however, you may work in another medium if you choose: acrylic, gouache, or acrylagouache. Please bring the same or equivalent pigments as listed above; also bring a water container, a spray/mist bottle to keep your paint wet, and a 1/2” square paintbrush, since these mediums may more easily applied with a brush, and cleaning brushes is less of an issue.
