Alter Ego: Supply List - Jeanne Oliver

Supply List

For the supplies, I’m sure you have many of those already. I divided the supply list into two parts; first, the necessary, and second, the optional ones. You don’t have buy everything to take the class and there are so many things you can substitute or that you may not need (see my notes below), but they will make everything more convenient. Should you enroll, you’ll have access to a video lesson where I explain all the materials in detail.


Old Magazines (or you can use Pinterest instead)
Journal/sketchbook/notebook (or an old book that you can use as a journal)
Clear gesso
Colored pencils, markers, watercolors, acrylics or any colored medium you have available already.
