Want to travel light when painting on location or do small studies in the studio without a lot of fuss? Gouache is currently trending as the water-based, opaque medium that is just that simple! Gouache comes in small tubes like watercolor, but is a favorite of oil and acrylic painters because of its unique properties. You can paint dark to light or vice versa by layering this fast drying opaque paint that has a velvety matte finish. In this two-day studio workshop, you will master the consistency and application of gouache as well as learn color mixing, shape design and simplification. There will be demos, exercises and plenty of painting. All you need are three brushes, a few tubes of paint and a heavyweight sketchbook or watercolor pad to get started. A supply list is available.
Level 1: Beginner – This class is appropriate for beginner to advanced painters. Covers the basic techniques of the medium and offers individual assistance. No prior experience is required.
