General Suggestions for Acrylics
Just like her chalk pastel art lessons there are no expensive, intimidating list of art supplies. Nana shares the basic supplies needed in her Introduction and Supplies video in the course. Dampened paper towels or baby wipes also make for easy clean up and help in cleaning off hands between colors.
Paint a backyard bird with Nana! Have you seen a titmouse at your feeder?
A nuthatch is so fun to watch! Paint one or two of these lovely birds with your acrylic paints or adapt the lesson using chalk pastels.
