Materials checklist Download a printable sheet here:

Bring boards or canvases –don’t forget you’ll need to take them home with you after the session, so not too big. The aim of this class is to paint small and paint often. For students, get good quality branded paints such as Ladoga or Winton Oils -good student quality paint, you can get them everywhere and the colours are consistent). 

PHASE 1: ESSENTIAL 6 COLOURS FOR BEGINNER PAINTERS: (GET THESE FIRST)
  • Cobalt Blue
  • Permanent Rose (or Crimson Lake, or Madder Red)
  • Cadmium Yellow Pale Hue
  • Titanium White (or Titanium buff)
  • Burnt Umber
  • Ivory Black (failing Ivory Black, get Indigo or Paynes Grey).
PHASE 2: PLUS THE FOLLOWING FOR AN EXTENDED PALETTE (YOU ONLY NEED TO GET THESE THESE ONCE YOU’VE BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE ABOVE PALETTE).
  • Sap green (or Viridian)
  • Cadmium Yellow Deep
  • Burnt Umber
  • Ultramarine Blue
  • Cadmium Red
 
  • DO bring the following (BEGINNERS AND INTERMEDIATE PAINTERS):
  • A Table box-easel. Such as this one. These are widely available in art shops.
  • flat wood painter’s palette (rather than one of those white palettes with dips -they’re more for watercolours).
  • Solvent: Zest-it, (if you can get it -if not, get Sansodor). For cleaning brushes and diluting paint.
  • Brushes –Synthetic short flat brights: 12 and 6. Also, a Round No. 1. Try Crafty Studio,  ArtminesK&M Evans or Eason) and THESE are the ones.  See a video about beginner brushes here.
  • Rags
  • If you like Liquin, bring that too. (Liquin is a quick-drying medium and glazing additive).
  • Wear old clothes: painting can be a messy business!

Terms and conditions for Regular art classes Dublin  

  • Signing up for a term of art classes is a 6 week commitment; classes not taken cannot be carried forward to a new term.
  • Terms can not be split up or fees discounted for classes not taken.
  • When students are unable to make it to a class for whatever reason, I will always endeavour to let them catch up in another art class but only if a place is available.
  • If I am unable to hold the art class, the class will be made up so students will not be short.
  • Payment must be made at least 2 weeks before the term begins, in order that a replacement student can be arranged from the waiting list.
  • Payment matters can not be discussed in the studio; the studio is a sanctuary for art, painting and creativity.
