Yupo is a synthetic, tree-free paper with a very silky surface & is
waterproof. The paint tends to flow and blend with a mind of its own.
It’s fun, different & a little challenging- but the outcome is worth it!
In this class you will have the opportunity to get to know Yupo as we paint a bear, beautiful fall leaves and a majestic mountain landscape.
Dates: November 9th : 9 am - 4 pm
Location: Elida Art Studio, 735 NE 6th Ave., Camas, WA
Instructor: Tamra Sheline
Cost: $135, includes Yupo Paper and instructions, lunch
Supplies: We ask you to bring watercolor paints & brushes. Please see the list for details on what you should bring for the class.
I focus this class on techniques and to get you more comfortable with Yupo.
Please bring suggested supplies to the class if you can. I encourage you to be flexible and use what you have whenever possible. We can adapt the colors and brushes to what you already have.
WATERCOLOR BRUSHES: Sable or synthetic or a blend of the two (synthetic is cheapest). Try to get the sharpest point. 1 Flat brush; 2 Round brushes #2 or 3 AND #10 or 12 (size varies with different companies. If you like working big, go bigger with your brushes.)
PAPER: Yupo paper will be supplied for projects.
WATERCOLOR PAINTS: I will be instructing with Watercolor Paints from the tube. If you already have water- colors, you do not need to purchase these particular colors. They are suggestions. Starting with a smaller number of colors is better. My favorite paint companies are: Daniel Smith, DickBlick and M.Graham BUT if purchasing a beginner set- generic is ok just make sure to get tubes.
•Yellow (Hansa, Cadimum or Indian)
•Black (Lamp or Ivory)
•Alizarin Crimson •Sap Green •Cerulean Blue
PALETTE: White is best- I personally use a Butcher Tray Palette (a plate is fine too)
OPTIONAL ITEMS: Paper towels (I prefer Viva), Q-tips cotton swabs, Watercolor pencil, Hairdryer (optional as
I’ll have some extras)
I will have extras of many of the items- let me know if you need to borrow anything. In this class, my main focus is on teaching techniques and getting you familiar with YUPO!
