The following links to products are affiliate links via amazon & Blick Arts. I may make a small commission on your purchase which helps fund our studio and endeavors such as our free art tutorials!
Watercolor paper: (Also used in week 1 & 2) You definitely don't need anything fancy! This pack of Canson paper is budget friendly and holds up well under pressure! It's able to handle a decent amount of water for younger kiddos and newer water-colorists, and comes with 30 sheets in this pad for under $6. It's a bargain and what I use in studio for my own students! We will use a sheet or two each week!
Watercolor Set: (Also used in week 1 & 2)
The set that is linked below is not what I think you need for this, but it's a set I love! The pigments are so intense. If you watched me paint Butterball the cat - these are the watercolors I used. PLEASE don't feel like a crayola watercolor set or anything comparable wouldn't be fine for these projects though!
Brushes: (Also used in week 1 & 2) We want a variety of shapes and sizes to learn with. These aren't the last set you'll ever need, lol, but at this price - they're going to be fun to play and learn with.
Sharpies! Fine and Ultra Fine: (Also used in week 1 & 2) Sharpies are a great artist's tool and we'll be using them a lot over the next few weeks! This pack is a twin-tip style, so you get your basic (thicker) lined sharpie, and your finer line (pen style) sharpie all in one!
Cardstock: (Also used in week 1 & 2) This is a nice size pack with 4 sheets of each color. We'll be using one sheet of black in week one, so this will cover up to 4 kids (one sheet each) with remaining colors to be used in the following weeks.
Craft Acrylic Paint: (Also used in week 1 & 2) Any craft acrylic paint is fine... and you really only need red, yellow and blue + black and white if you're good at color mixing. But this set has every color you could need and more! Plenty to share with siblings and friends!
8x10 canvas: (Also used in week 1 & 2) This pack includes 14 canvases! That's probably WAY more than most of you will need or want, but many of the other options are sold out in smaller packs. It's around $1 per canvas in this pack though - so you're saving a good bit. If you think you could share these with a friend, or have multiple kids painting over the next few weeks, I think it's a great buy. The Dollar Tree is also a great option if you're not sure that you want 14, lol. You can buy an individual 8x10 panel for $1 each.
Any Air Dry Clay: (Also used in week 1)
We are suggesting model magic again because that's what we used in week 1. But any air dry clay will do - even if it is only available in white; you can paint it once dry! This set should cover 1 or 2 children.
I love a set with at least 24 pcs for good shading & realism! We'll use these on the still life day!
Low temp hot glue gun & glue sticks
Additional supplies that I expect most will have on hand:
- pencils / erasers
- Found items such as empty tin cans, jar lids, buttons, bottle caps to build our robot with!
- Salt! coarse salt works best (either loose or in a grinder) - but if you don't have any table
salt will give you a less dramatic effect.
- Play-doh rolling pin, or small cylinder that we can flatten model magic with! **If any of these supplies are NOT in stock on Amazon or Blick - simply search for an alternative brand. We will continually update as we notice comments about out of stock items. If you are able to get out to a brick and mortar store, you can do that as well. Everything in this list can be substituted.
