Course Costs and Equipment/ Stationery requirements

$60 Take Home Contribution that includes external folio submission costs. Students taking this course will produce products that will be taken home and therefore will be asked to pay $60 for the cost of materials.

This cost contributes towards the gesso, paper, card and paint that is used throughout the year. A variety of additional more specialist materials are provided for the students to experiment with before they commit to buying their own supplies, for example oil paint, watercolour, slow drying acrylic and canvas supports.

Students should have a collection of art materials that they have built upon over their time at EGGS and this will need to be added to during the year. Local art supplies stores will offer a student discount on materials needed for Painting.
