[back to quicklinks]
$ 155  

Roben-Marie will guide you through her solution for bridging the gap between paper and painting and inspire you to approach your art in a new way. You will walk away with a piece of art that is wall ready and ideas that translate to your journal or any other mixed media project! Learn an easy way to approach the blank canvas with confidence!

•Smooth Finish Artist Wood Panel - 10 x 10 Cradled with 1 ½” profile
•Paper for the base of the painting
•Stabilo Marks-All Pencil

Supplies Needed to bring for Class:
• Assorted acrylic paints in your favorite colors: be sure to include white and black

• Assorted paintbrushes: I like small and medium round brushes. Also a couple inexpensive brushes for use with adhesive
• Scissors and ruler
• Palette knife
• Medium or heavy gel medium
• No 2 pencil
• X-Acto knife and cutting mat
• Heat tool
• White pen or white grease pencil
• Liquid inks (2 colors) – I like Golden High Flow, but you can use any liquid inks
• Glue stick and/or liquid adhesive such as collage pauge or PVA
• Cloth or rag (I like to use a piece of cotton muslin)
• Black ball point pen or your favorite black journaling pen
• Mark-making tools - I like using lids to create circle imprints but bring what you like
