I prefer working in oils because my mixture will stay wet for the class. Acrylic will dry quickly so you will need to keep them wet with water or a retarder.
Hansa yellow light, Or Cadmium Yellow Light ( primary yellow )
Alizarin crimson or Permanent Rose ( primary red )
Ultramarine blue or phtalo blue ( primary blue ) - I like both, but Phtalo is my favorite
canvas, panel or paper to work on
Sketch pad and pencils
Acrylic and oil disposable Palette Pad 16x20 . You can use a roll wax paper
Paint medium to help base coat your canvas and block in color. I fill a flip top bottle (think small dish liquid bottle) with 80% Liquin and 20% Damar Varnish to thin and speed the drying for oils. if you are working in acrylics use Liquitex glazing medium and water Great for base layers
Gamsol and a sealed container for cleaning brushes. There are several Eco friendly products out there now as well.
