- Substrate paper (thick watercolor or mixed media paper, cardboard, canvas, wood panel, old book cover – whatever you want to make your work on)
- Collage paper (colorful paper, painted paper, junk mail, magazines – old magazines are particularly good, newspaper, catalogs, wrapping paper, tissue paper, old homework, thin cardboard, whatever you have on hand)
- Glue (glue stick, Elmer’s school glue, matte or gloss medium, Mod Podge – you don’t need all of these, one will be enough, but if you have them, bring them and I will talk about how they work with different materials)
- Scissors (if you have several pairs that you don’t mind using on paper, bring whatever you have, an x-acto blade, if you have it and feel comfortable using it)
- Optional items (paint, markers, pencils, pens, colored pencils, any mark making items)
