Linda will provide students with vine charcoal, stick charcoal, pens, conte crayon and other drawing materials.  Linda will supply Strathmore Illustration board, Hake brushes, white wax candles, white acrylic paint, matte medium and tissue paper for the “snow” painting. She also provide the Masonite boards and water buckets.

New policy: If you cannot make this class, please let us know. If you do not cancel at least 7 days in advance, the materials fee will be charged to you. Our artists work hard to keep their materials fees affordable, and they need to purchase supplies in advance. When people do not show, they are often unable to recoup these costs. Thank you for understanding.
