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.
