*Students will need:
1. Paper towels (lots)
2. One or two cleaned styrofoam meat trays (white is best)

5. Chinese rice paper (for watercolour) is a lightweight paper. Probably available at Man Lee or any art supply store. LOTS, we will be using several sheets. Again this is not an expensive product – Asian markets carry it.
