What To Bring To Class

Be Prepared!


My motto is "Be Prepared"

but in saying that: 

you don't have to go out and buy a bundle of art supplies.


For your first class

Here is a simple list of items that you will need.


If you have artist acrylic paints bring some of your favorite colors

but just if you have some! There is no need to go out and buy paint..... Paint will be provided.

Don't buy Paint until you are sure what to buy.

Your kit will grow as your experience progresses.


Mask or face cover during covid times. It is mandatory at this time.  Please remember to bring one!

Hand Cleaner/ Disinfectant

Paper Towels x 1 roll

Baby wipes

****Latex Surgical Gloves: (if you don't want to get your hands dirty)

Note paper and pen

Apron or ware old clothes to class. (You will get paint on you!)

Pair of slippers (old ones) you might  get paint on them.

A book to give you inspiration: 

(A magazine or book that uses colors you like in the photographs or inspirational words)

The one that I like is the LCBO magazine. It's free and you can cut something out or

get paint on it and it just doesn't matter). You may or may not use this in class but is handy reference

when you need it.

A few dollars for canvas and supplies if needed. I keep some things on hand.  

Something to drink

Small snack or munchies

Don't fret if you don't have all the items

Where do I go?

Classes and workshops are held at

273 Rowat Rd.  Dryden Ontario.

Turn onto Bonnie Bay road east of Dryden

Take first right after the tracks. That's Rowat Rd
