You need the following ready and setup before 6:30 pm.

a) CANVAS:  We will be using a 16" x 20" canvas.  If you don't have this size then you can use any size, preferably a rectangular shape.  If you only have a square canvas then you can block of some areas not to paint if you want to have the painting look the same as the sample.

If you don't have a canvas you can also use a piece of smooth plywood, a piece of smooth cardboard, a piece of drywall and as a last resort heavy paper or canvas fabric.  Paper won't be as good because it will curl and cause some problems.  If you use plywood, cardboard or drywall, you will need to prime with a white paint first, you can use any household white paint, including wall paint for this.  If you want to paint on a canvas cloth you will need some type of primer for this to make the cloth paintable.

b) ACRYLIC PAINT:  Black, White, Blue, Red and  Yellow.  You can purchase supplies from the Dollar Store, Walmart or Michael's.  

You can also use tempura paint, normally used for children's paint.  You can as a last resort use regular household paint, meant for walls, and change colours with food dye.

If you do decide to go out to purchase paint then be sure to buy BASIC colours.  RED, YELLOW and BLUE along with black and white.  All colours can be made from these.  Be sure the are bright basic colours.  Like children colours bright red like an apple, bright blue like aquamarine and bright yellow.  Nice to haves would also be a brown and green but they are not necessary.

c) BRUSHES:  2  brushes.  Large and small. Bonus: a fan brush. Don't have art brushes, even regular wall paint brushes will do for the large one and makeup brushes for the small if you need.  

d) APRON:  You will need to wear an old T-shirt or apron for the class so as not to get paint on your clothes.

e) DROP CLOTH:  You will need a drop cloth, newspaper or an old table cloth to cover your table that you will be painting on.

f) PAPER TOWELS:  or a rag.

g) WATER:  A cup of water for cleaning you brushes.

h) PAPER PLATE: A plastic or paper plate or if you do not have that then a old regular dinner plate to put the paint on, or the lid to a large ice cream tub.  Don't have those; you can use tin foil, wax paper, or plastic wrap and put over a good dinner plate to save your plate.

i) EASEL?:   If you have great!   If you don't - no worries! You can paint flat on the table or you can prop the canvas up with a book, or even sit the top end of the canvas on a cup to raise the top half of the canvas up a bit.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST:  Would we be called Winnipeg Art & Wine if we didn't suggest a wine or beverage of your choice during the painting?  Wine, hot chocolate whatever floats your boat.  Let's just have SOME FUN!
