Gouache Foundations taught by Liz Carlson
July 11 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm CDT
Multi-Session ClassClass meets Mondays, July 11, 18, and 25 from 3-5pm CT
Gouache is trending! What is it? How is it different than watercolor? In this monochromatic gouache foundations class you’ll discover the different properties of gouache painting and learn techniques to apply in sketchbooks and final work. With a simple three color palette you can focus on technique and having fun! Pick your favorite color, we’ll be mixing with black and white! Blues, reds, greens and violets maybe some fun summer color ideas!
You’ll be a gouache expert after the three weeks of online class work and some homework to keep you creating.
Gouache: One color of your choice, plus Permanent White and Jet Black. Recommended: Holbein brand Artists Gouache.
