Utrecht Basic Color Set ó $28.50
This popular set of six colors provides a basic color palette for the first time painter at an economical price. A longtime favorite of teachers, it's also an excellent limited palette for classroom assignments. The set includes 2 oz (59 ml) tubes of Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow Hue, Cadmium Red Hue, Brilliant Blue, Brilliant Green, and Ivory Black.
Basic Utrecht Paint Set
If you canít afford Utrecht, try Blick acrylic paint. This is inexpensive paint. ( I have never used.) Perhaps, good for students who have never painted. Absolute Beginners!

Bring what paint brushes you have on hand.
We will discuss the quality of brushes on the first day of class. Oil/Acrylic paint brushed come in many sizes, and are classified as Round, Flat, Filbert or Bright. I use and recommend Bright brushes. I believe
Blick Scholastic Wonder White Brushes are a good start. I recommend sizes: "8" (1/4 "), "10" (3/8"), and "20" (7/8").
If you are unsure of your interest in pursuing painting buy inexpensive ones.
Walmart has the below brushes for $4.54. Quality of brushed unknown.
