Gouache - Class Description

LEVEL: Intermediate and 12+

PRE-REQUISITES: Drawing 101, Painting 101, Watercolor 101

DESCRIPTION:

Join the old masters in a study of Gouache. Learn to put your watercolor painting on a canvas. Paint romantic landscapes and styling still lifes, even painterly portraits. While gouache can look like acrylics, it retains the ease of watercolor's water based clean up and reactivation. 


SUPPLIES:

Recommended gouache paints from Michael's store. They carry Reeves Gouache paint set for about $15 (less with coupon). If the budget allows, Windsor Newton's Designer Gouache is far better quality ($10.99 per tube, $5.99 with coupon). Both will work. Hobby Lobby carries watercolor canvas for under $10, less with online coupon (acrylic canvas will not work). Watercolor brush fine.
