Workshop Gathering Materials

Updated: Dec 18, 2022

The primary benefit of practicing any art, whether well or badly, is that it enables one's soul to grow.

-Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Gathering your materials and inspirations

I tried to organize a materials list without limiting your creativity. I will, with some hesitation, make suggestions. I hope that you will not bog yourself down with trips to the craft store. Instead, consider the supplies you have on hand. Look through your junk drawers and recycling. All sorts of items can be used to make interesting marks and textures.

Material Ideas for Intuitive Painting:

  • Canvas, watercolor paper, multi- media paper, cardboard, card-stock, paper bags

  • Acrylic paints, watercolor, oil pastels

  • Stencils, feathers, marking tools like scrapers, pallet knives, old credit cards, business cards

  • Qtips, dabbers, pencil erasers

  • Collage adhesives such as glue sticks, Mod Podge,

  • Old magazines

  • Cardboard or other stiff surfaces to mount paper when painting

  • Blue painters tape
