WHAT SUPPLIES WILL BE PROVIDED FOR CLASS?
The studio is well equipped, and students will be provided with the following:
Easels, Tabarets (for palettes and supplies), Still-Life shadow boxes, Still-Life fruit and props, Live Models
You should bring:
Palette (plexi-glass is great for travel)
HOW DO I GET MY SUPPLIES TO PARIS?
I have found that the best way to get your paints and supplies to Paris is to ship them ahead of time. Our host Edgar has generously agreed to accept packages sent by post to his studio. Once you register, you will receive the address where you can send your supplies. Of course, you may travel with your supplies if you wish.
The OLD MASTERS MAROGER mediums for the workshop (Flemish Maroger and Italian Wax) will be available for sale at the workshop, and therefore you do not need to travel with these.
Note: I have always found it convenient to travel with a piece of plexi-glass to use for a palette. This way you do not have to worry about glass breaking.
CAN I LEAVE MY SUPPLIES AT THE STUDIO OVERNIGHT?
Yes! We are the only ones using the studio during the course of the workshop, so you can leave all your supplies at your station. There is even a sink for washing your brushes, so you won’t have to take those back to your hotel either!

“I CONSIDER MYSELF A BEGINNER. CAN I JOIN?”
Absolutely. I teach all levels, and am expecting all kinds of students to join the class. I myself had never held a brush when I took my first painting workshop with a very well-known artist, so I know how it feels to start out. I love working with people new to painting; they are like a blank slate!
