Supplies for "Figures in Art"
with Nicole Kennedy

Supplies can be found at Jerry's Artarama:
AskewTaylor, Michaels or AC Moore.

If you are puchasing oils, my favorite brand is by Charvin Colors available at Jerry's Artarama.
Another great brand is Lukas, they have both student grade and professional grade.
Acrylics, check out the Matisse Structure Brand, also at Jerry's.

You will be painting from a live model in this class, no photos required!

• Burnt Umber or Red Oxide -
•A cool red like Alizarin Crimson (or Magenta if you are using Charvin)
•A warm or regular red - Cadmium Red, Napthol Red Light, or Vermillion
•Cad Yellow or Charvin's French Primary Yellow
•Ultramarine Blue
•Cerulean Blue (Or Manganese Blue) -Hue OK (good for mixing brighter opaque greens)
