DISCOVER GOUACHE

 

Hello Painters

Gouache is an opaque watercolor paint and an underrated and overlooked medium for

the advantages and beauty it offers. The opacity enables the painter to build one color on top

of the other, especially white and light colors on top of dark colors,  similar to acrylics and oils.

Because gouache is water-soluble, many techniques used in transparent watercolor can be

applied to gouache as well.

 

In this class we will explore layering paint as well utilizing a light touch with watered down paint.

There will be weekly demos and critiques. All levels are welcome but basic painting knowledge will be helpful.

An $8 material fee is payable in the first class.

Materials will be kept to a minimum. Less expensive gouache paint will be

adequate for this class but you can upgrade if the need arises.

WATER COLOR COLLAGE

 

Hello Painters

 

In this 5 hour workshop beginning and intermediate watercolor students will learn a

unique approach to the art of WATERCOLOR COLLAGE. We will prepare two paintings simultaneously:

one as a beginning of a painting and the other as a collage sheet using the same color palette as the painting. 

We will tear shapes from the collage sheet and after careful positioning we will glue the shapes to the painting

which will then start taking on a whole new dimension. By doing this we will learn first hand about strong

compositions and especially about the importance of values and extension of color.  In the process we will also

touch on basic watercolor techniques like color mixing, washes, brushwork etc.

 

There will be inspiring Hand Outs to work from and demos will be given by the instructor as well as

feedback on students work. Individual attention will be given as time allows.

 

Materials will be kept to a minimum.

Please email Anouk for the material list and/or questions about the class. 

There will be a $8 Hand Out fee payable at the beginning of the workshop.
