At least 5 pieces of watercolor paper or 5 canvases - any size you prefer

Paints – watercolor, tempera, and/or acrylics. Acrylics are easiest – inexpensive is fine.

Acrylic mediums – matte / gloss / white gesso (clear and black are nice too!)

Brushes – old beat up brushes / foam brushes / cosmetic sponges - your nice brushes will only get ruined - leave them home

Scissors, paper trimmer if you have one

Paper Towels and UNSCENTED baby wipes

Paper plates or whatever you like to use as a mixing surface

Water containers and small cups to mix paint in (recycle yogurt cups etc)

Collage materials – thin to thick for printing on: papers made in Kathleen Conover’s workshop are ideal -- made on Pacon brand
Art Tissue paper - available from Pacon or DickBlick.

If you wish – these non-archival papers: Massa paper, Tibetan papers, fiber papers, rice papers, handmade papers – any interesting
papers you have – even newspapers, muslin or thin cloth

Ailene’s, Elmer’s, or PVA glue and Glue sticks

10 Clear or white UNSCENTED garbage bags

Plastic dish washing bin – inexpensive is fine, even better is a “Washing Machine Overflow plastic tray (try Menards or the big home improvement stores)

Wax paper, clear plastic wrap and cooking parchment paper – inexpensive is fine.

Pens, crayons, pencils, markers, Conte crayons, charcoal – whatever you have

Masking tape

Quotes, recipes, favorite sayings, poetry, your own signs and symbols – like crows,
Celtic spirals, bears or happy faces and peace signs. Feel free to print your text from a computer
if you want it in a certain font. Bring lettering stencils or print freehand.

A few sheets of copy paper - to layer in collages to bring back a white surface.

Pieces of mat board or cardboard - use as backing boards, palettes or mark making.  Old framing mats are nice for evaluating your work.

“Foamies” craft sheets – these are usually in the kid’s art section

Optional, but fun - Buttons, stamps, stickers, stencils, bits of string, rocks – whatever you have in your "collection" that has been making you keep them - toss in your bag and bring! Charms, ribbons, netting, old envelopes, photo copies of photographs, rubber stamps, decorative fibers and yarns, twine, decorative paper punches, National Geographics or other favorite magazines, regular paper... if you plan on sewing, bring needles and thread.  Corks, chopsticks, feathers or sticks from nature – these all make great mark making tools!  If you are trying to cut back on your collection - bring these treasures for the "sharing table".

Wear clothing you don’t mind getting paint on!!!  bring an apron or paint shirt - whatever you have.

All Classes and Workshops - Help those with Allergy issues - No oils or pastels please. No Latex gloves. No Solvents.  Limit scents - such as perfumes, beauty products, anything with a scent.

If you enjoy music when you create bring a personal player with ear buds.

I look forward to working with you!  Thank you for signing up for my workshop! Kathleen Mooney
