Materials list available by request. Palette set-up with instructions at first session, if needed. By popular request, we now offer, at a discounted cost of $60, a “Beginner’s Kit,” which includes two palettes (one with paint) two brushes, and professional-grade watercolor paper – must be pre-ordered.
