Neil McClelland -



For this class I am assuming that you have some experience painting so use whatever paints you generally use—oil, or acrylic.

Recommended colours:
Quinacridone Red, Permanent Rose, Ultramarine Blue, Lemon Yellow, Titanium White, Burnt Sienna, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red, Phthalo Blue, Cadmium Yellow.

You will need a palette, brushes, rags, and whatever you need to clean your brushes.


We will generally need two small or medium-sized surfaces to paint on each day for class and homework assignments. Stretched primed canvas, large canvas paper, or gessoed wood panel is acceptable.

This course will include collage exercises, so have some colour magazine sources available, glue, scissors and matboard or stiff cardboard to glue images onto.

Also have available: tracing paper, glassine, or parchment paper (from grocery store is fine) or any thin translucent paper that you can trace images on and/or paint on.

For the digital collage part of the course you will need some photo processing software. I will be providing information during the first class as to a few free Open Source options.
