VA255 - Drawn to Paint

$ 295  


My latest obsession when it comes to art is painting with Gouache, an opaque watercolor paint that can used to create beautiful paintings with a flat finish. In this two day workshop we will be using multiple reference images that we feel a connection to to create a drawing that we will then paint using gouache paints and soft pastel crayons. Learn basic composition skills, how to mix colors, and gouache painting techniques. 

Student should bring to class:
A variety of watercolor/acrylic paint brushes, from small to medium in size.
Container for water
A collection of reference images that you feel connected to. 
A favorite poem or two
Optional, but nice to have: 16” x 20” Drawing Board to mount your paper to

Materials Fee: $25 paid to instructor at beginning of class includes:

Gouache Paint & Palette
2 Sheets of 11” x 14” Cotton Watercolor Paper
Pastels and Tape to share
