Basic Tool Kit

We've had numerous questions about what to include in your basic tool kit.  Our thoughts are you should bring any of the tools you find useful when crafting (that can still fit in your class bag ) and should definitely include:


Watercolor Basic Tool Kit

Our Watercoloring with AI series has been very popular and has it's own list of items that you'll want to bring with you for every class:

DISTRESS MARKERS (each class will list specific colors). It is recommended you bring all your markers to each class.
ACRYLIC BLOCKS (various sizes)
PAINT BRUSHES (size 1 & 4)
FLOWERS & FOLIAGE Stamp Sets (provided for intro class)

Class Registration Policy

Please check your supply list carefully and bring the listed items or let us know if you will need them the day of class. 
We ask that you pay for classes at the time of registration.  Our new system does not let us hold spots in classes.
Cancelations are requested as early as possible to give us time to fill your spot and refunds will be given as store credit if canceled at least 5 full business days prior to class.  In the case of last minute cancelations, a supply packet will be made up and while instructions are not usually included we will try our best to help with any difficult parts...
