I would recommend that you work in a medium that you have prior experience in. The class is geared towards the landscape experience, not methods and materials. 

  • A backpack to carry your supplies
  • Sketchbook and drawing tools, which may include and are not limited to: pencils, pens, ink, charcoal pencils, markers, and erasers, pencil sharpeners.
  • Easel (optional): Aluminum easel- or French easel, made of wood, it combines the easel itself with a storage box for your material and palette
  • Paper towels: plenty of them.
  • Rubbish bags: supermarket carrier bags are perfect for this. Use one bag for your rubbish, as you want to leave the site you paint spotless.
  • Portable chair -if you like to sit while working.
  • Bug spray
  • Hat
  • Neutral clothing and ones you don’t mind getting paint on.
  • A painting apron
  • Sunscreen
  • Water bottle
  • Non-latex gloves- this is up to the individual
  • Tape-artist or masking
  • Snacks-candy-gum etc
  • Advil, personal things you may want
  • A digital camera: this is optional, but it helps in case the weather changes or if you don’t have the time to finish your painting on site and need a reference photograph
