A mission to support, encourage, and showcase the work of local artists
Saturday January 11 and Saturday January 18
This is a gouache "How To" class. You can use gouache like watercolor, oil, or acrylic. Layer it for effects, be loose or tight. Gouache comes in several forms and colors, is inexpensive and lasts a long time. It is safe, just add water, and you can take it on the plane!
At a meeting last year, Priscilla showed us how much fun it is and now it's your chance to try it for yourself!
Day 1 is learning the basics of gouache technique, the types and how to use them, also the best papers, boards and brushes. For both beginner and intermediate gouache painters, we will discover its working properties, which are unique from any other medium. You can produce fascinating effects with gouache that you cannot duplicate with anything else. And, we will discuss how to travel anywhere with it.
Day 2, we will complete some sketches with our new medium, and as time permits, work on a finished gouache painting. Along the way, you will acquire new knowledge and skills to assist you with all of your painting, in any medium.
This class will be in the studio for the first day. For the second day, students will decide whether the class will be held indoors or out.
Workshop fee is $220 for Non-Members and $210 for Art Center Associate and Artist Member. This fee is for both classes, as both sessions are recommended. Individual days will be permitted if necessary.
