The Original Paint Nite: Unleash your inner artist

Keep the Covid Blues at bay the Yaymaker way!!

A Yaymaker VIRTUAL PAINT NITE event!!! 

Recommended Supplies - Source online, support local businesses, or use supplies you already have at home! (pencils, crayons, markers, on canvas, paper, cardboard, wood, smooth stones . . . use your imagination!)

 Any size-  whatever works for you! (you can even paint over a previous Paint Nite painting) I recommend Michael's Super Value Pack canvases.  You can get 5-7 canvases (depending what size) for $16 (CDN $) and you can usually use a coupon too.  They are better quality and smoother to paint on. 

Acrylic Artist or Craft Paints:
 Craft paints can be found at the dollar or craft stores for around $2 a bottle.  If buying beginner artist paints, I recommend Liquitex Basics which you can find at any art store, including Michaels.  For this painting, we will be using orange, golden yellow, dark purple, black and white. 

If you are using artist paints and would like the specific shades I will be using, I will share this with you at the beginning of the lesson. 

Paint Brushes
: A variety of sizes

Paint Palette
: A disposable plate, piece of cardboard, or a tupperware lid (finally a use for all of the lids without bottoms!) 

: Water to rinse your brush out between colours.  A disposable cup, old margarine container, or tupperware will do. 

Paper Towel:
For drying our paint brushes after rinsing

Hair Dryer:
 Not necessary, but nice to have to quickly dry your painting between steps if needed.

- Protective apron or old t-shirt to keep your favorite outfits fresh even at home
