I'm taking a class with Dina Wakely and one of the supplies on the list is Deli Paper.
What is deli paper? butcher paper, wax paper, parchment paper?

Deli paper is a thin, lightly coated paper like a deli/sandwich shop would wrap sliced meats and sandwiches with,the inner layer of wrap before the outer butcher paper. Hope that's not too confusing!
Many artists use this paper as disposable paint pallettes. It can be purchased at places like Costco or restaurant supply stores,in what looks like an oversize tissue box,comes in different sizes. The individual sheets are dispensed similar to tissues-pull one out as another pops up.
If you can't find any or would rather not buy a whole box-and it will only be used as a paint pallette in class-wax paper would be an acceptable substitute.
Lucky you,a class with Dina Wakely-I love her work!

Now off to find it in smaller quantities than 1000 sheets.

Wouldn't butcher paper (sometimes also called freezer paper) or baking parchment work the same?

What paperandglue said, if you're just using it for a palette, either wax, or freezer paper will work.
If you're using it for something else, not 100% sure, but you might also be able to find it in the art section of craft stores. They are usually around the artist pallets, or painting tools section. Maybe a coated tissue paper would work also.
Its a bit difficult because deli paper isn't that easy to find in small quantities.
ETA: If you only need a few sheets, maybe a deli would give you some? Even if you offered a dollar or something lol, you never know.

My sister and daughter have used wax paper for palettes, and keep any extra paint leftover on the paper in the freezer for the next time they plan to paint. A styrofoam plate works well, too.
