You will need your own materials and equipment for each session here is a list of the basic kit you will need for all the sessions and underneath it we will list the specific additional items needed for the different sessions.

Basic Kit
There really are no rules when it comes to materials, you can use anything and everything but here are a few recommendations

  • Journal – A sketch book, old book, notebook or even the back of an old envelope will do.
  • Gesso – artists acrylic primer, used to prepare pages for paint, use thinly to mask images or thickly to add texture. If you don’t have gesso, any white paint will do.
  • Pens and pencils – any will do
  • Paint – again your choice, I like to use acrylics or watercolours.
  • Crayons, markers, felt tips, pastels or chalks
  • Stamps, Stencils – You can make your own stencils or look around the house to see what could be used as a stencil or stamp.
  • Scissors and Glue -it’s best to have PVA and glue sticks. A mix of half PVA and half water is great to use as a glaze to seal your pages.
  • Ephemera – these are your collage elements, start collecting nice bits of paper, tickets, receipts, postage stamps, whatever catches your eye.
  • Paint Brushes and Scraping Tools – get a variety of sizes, old credit cards make great scraping tools! If you haven’t got these remember your fingers will do!
  • A heat gun or hair dryer to speed up drying.

    Had a very relaxing hour art journalling with Lisa tonight on the theme of “Positivity”. Lisa made sure we were all ok throughout and explained each stage as we went along. Very enjoyable and well done to Straightcurves for setting up virtual courses! Thank you 😀

    This was my first experience of a lesson via zoom. The pre-course instructions were clear and ensured I had the materials to hand for the session. Lisa guided us throughout giving us plenty of ideas. Already booked for next week. Would definitely recommend.
