The Gold Coast Art School

For those that want to, but don't believe they can.

Equipment List


Students must supply their own painting and drawing materials. If you already have the materials listed on the right, then you will not be required to purchase any extras.

We do prefer that you use "Art Spectrum" colours as all brands differ is colour and quality and this will make it easier when we do the colour mixing and colour theory classes.

If you don't have any equipment at this stage then complete kits are available to purchase on your first lesson for $225.00. This kit contains all the materials you will require for the Foundation Course with a discount of 15% and supplied in a complimentary Gold Coast Art School bag.
