The participants need to bring their own material. Tiskita can provide an easel, containers, and oil paint diluents. Recommended are acrylic, oil, and watercolor media. There is no art supply store nearby Tiskita.
The tropical climate can make paint react differently than a temperate climate.
The painting package does not include transportation, but we can assist with travel arrangements within Costa Rica.
