At a later stage you can also purchase Cobalt Blue, Viridian Green, Purple, Naples Yellow.
You can purchase canvas 50cm x 40cm or 40cm x 30cm from the art room in Grange. If you need other sizes they can be purchased at SG Educationin Carraroe (Behind Feehily's Flowers on the old Sligo-Ballisodare road)
KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THE SETS OF OIL PAINTS THAT SG EDUCATION HAVE IN STOCK. THEY USUALLY COME IN SETS OF TWELVE 75ml TUBES (In my opinion, Winsor & Newton or Daler Rowney are the best brands)
Set of 'small blue brushes' (approx €7)
Set of blue/purple sable hair brushes (approx €11)
Set of Hog hair brushes (approx €11)
Set of pallet knives (shop around for these as some brands can be quite expensive. Sets in Lidl, Mr Price etc can be just as effective especially when you are just starting off).

A bottle of White Spirits (please buy in a hardware store but do not buy turpentine or a product called 'Clean Spirits' as these are not suitable for art.
Linseed Oil. (may also be purchased in a hardware store)
Jam Jar with lid
Old clothes and clothes such as baby wires.
That's about it.
I would recommend SG Education for all of your paints, brushes disposable pallets. At a later stage you can also buy your artist varnish there for your finished works. I will advise you on what's best for your particular painting when you get to that stage.
I hope you enjoy every minute of your time painting with us.
