What to Bring

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