You will receive free sample products to use at the workshop from the companies sponsoring my events. These are the products I use and love the most. For this workshop we are mainly working in the studio so you do not need an outdoor plein air easel. A small table easel is fine or bring your own easel for indoor work. There are two easels in the studio for students to use.
