There will be stencils and stencil brushes and an assortment of acrylic paints and brushes for use in the workshop.   Bring your own stencils, acrylic paints, brushes, T-squares and yard sticks if you wish. (Put your name on your supplies and equipment). You’ll learn how to prepare the canvas for painting and how to seal your project at home after the paints have had time to cure.  Be prepared to take you floor cloth home flat.  If you have it, bring a hair dryer.  Wear your old painting clothes.  The leader will bring all other tools and supplies you’ll need to use during the workshop.
