Nature Inspired Art & Texture

Nature Inspired Art & Text – Rebecca Wild

Supply List
  • Several images or silhouettes of objects from the natural world. Try to choose images that aren't very complex such as leaves, fruit, birds, etc. We will cut simple stencils from contact paper using an exacto knife based on these shapes. Bring images no bigger than 3" x 4". (Coloring books can be good sources)
  • Nature inspired words
  • 4H, 2B, 6B pencils (or similar variety of graphite pencils) (S142)
  • Pencil sharpener (PL32, PL13)
  • Calligraphy and lettering tools
  • Sumi ink (I70)
  • A twin tip, black fine/ultra-fine Sharpie Marker. If you already own some black waterproof pens (test them) bring those instead if they are similar sizes to the Sharpie.
  • Tuff Stuff eraser or Pentel Click Eraser or similar (E06)
  • Staedtler Mars White Plastic eraser (E13)
  • Kneaded eraser (E08)
  • Scrap paper 20 sheets (8 ½ x 11 is fine) This can be used copy paper not printed on one side.
  • ½ sheet of sandpaper 220 or finer. This will be for grinding stick pastels. If you use Pan Pastels you won't need sandpaper. (S979, S952)
  • A flat, water color or acrylic brush approximately 1" or bigger. Will be used with acrylic paint. Should be soft bristles. I like the Dick Blick Scholastic Wonder White Flat or Bright #20. Serial #05380-1020. (BR60)
  • Pointed brush size 2 or similar (BR63)
  • Paint palette (S679)
  • Water jar (S1005)
  • Small scrap of a soft, fine weave cotton rag
  • Wiping rag for brushes or paper towels (S817)
  • Sharp x–acto knife #11 or similar with extra blades (S417, S130)
  • (Self-healing) plastic cutting board any size (S504)
  • Roll of Scotch Magic Tape ¾" green label (must be this brand, size and kind) Do not buy blue label removable. (S699)
  • Roll of 1" blue painters tape or Frog tape (S931)
  • Metal ruler with cork backing or a cheap wooden ruler with a metal edge (S270)
  • Soft Pastels not oil pastels or 2-3 warm colors and 2-3 cool colors of your choice. Pan pastels are expensive but fantastic. A small set of Alpha Color Pastels brand works fine. Choose deep hues that are saturated with color. Avoid pale hues. Avoid Nupastel brand. (Rebecca will bring extra stick pastels to share) (S885, S952)
  • A small set of Prismacolor artist's quality colored pencils or 2 warm and 2 cool colors. (or similar non- water soluble brand) (PL05, PL28, PL29)
  • Paper sack to use as a garbage can
  • A hair dryer if you have one. This will expedite drying paint and medium.
  • Be thinking of color palettes that appeal to you. Rebecca will provide the artist paper you will work on.
    Optional:
    • Wipes
    • An assortment of pointed and flat brushes (Click HERE for our selection of brush)
    • Broad edge graphite pencils (S878, S861)
    • Drafting brush (S990)
    • Apron (APRN38, APRN41)
    • Small sharp scissors (S835)
    • Acrylic pens
    • If using Pan Pastels bring applicator tools (S978)
    The $25 supply fee includes instruction folders, Strathmore 500 paper, Arches Text Wove, Canson paper for portfolios, portfolio inserts, contact paper, tracing paper, wax paper, fun-foam for embossing, glue sticks, latex surgical gloves, pastels for lending, powdered graphite, eye shadow brushes, foam wedges, canisters for graphite, gouache, fluid acrylic paints, acrylic markers, matte medium, and various wooden tools for cutting into paint.
