If there are any questions, please feel free to call me or e-mail me. Bring any pastels you have with you to the first class.
You can expect to pay $50 or more for supplies, depending on what you already have. This is just a guess-timate so you have an idea about the costs. Prices tend to vary quite a bit.
Supplies are available at Berry’s in Oakland, Michael’s or AC Moore in Augusta. There is also the Artists and Craftsman Supply in Portland. I am also including a catalog/internet company that I purchase from:

Many students have mentioned that the initial outlay of money for these supplies is high. I spoke with Michael at "Berry's" and he will supply a great paint box made by a Russian company "Yarka". The colors are great and I use this myself. If people get the Yarka paint box they also will need to get a tube of "ceruleum blue" and the white acrylic.
