View List of Materials

Below are two lists: a ‘starter kit’ of the essential materials (palette, brushes, etc.) and a paint list, plus an accompanying image of the starter kit.

The starter kit costs around €55, which you can buy at La Bottega dell’Artista.  Reminder: all group courses are run in the basement of La Bottega dell’Artista, so it is very easy for you to buy what you need the first day of the course.

The core set of Michael Harding oil paints cost €81.60.

In order to provide an affordable alternative to those not wanting to buy all of the paint, you can, instead, choose to pay me an additional, one-time fee of €30 per Session during the registration process and I will provide you with all of the oil paints you need.
