What to Bring

Tables and chairs and basic free-standing metal easels will be provided for the artists. Artists will need to provide their own free-standing or tabletop easels if desired, and drawing or painting materials. Paint thinners with obnoxious fumes should not be used. Also, some art materials like charcoal are messy, so if your art is messy, come prepared with a drop cloth or be prepared to sweep/damp mop spills after the session.
