You will not need paint until Class #3, but this is the full list of supplies so you can pick them up as you like and are able.

In addition, for Class #2, we will be working with black and white collage, so please find and collect ONLY black and white magazine pages. Look for interesting patterns, dots, dashes, text, etc. Alternately, if you find interesting color pages you’d like to work with, I suggest you print them on a black and white copier and use just the black and white versions only.
