A42 Introduction to Gouache Painting

Level I – This class is for those with some familiarity with the medium. This could include informal use of medium outside of the classroom.

Gouache, or opaque watercolor, is a terrific and under-appreciated medium! Imagine painting in watercolor “dark to light” just like oils. Fix mistakes with ease. Clean up in seconds. Paint thin or thick as you please. Remember those fantastic old Disney backgrounds? Yes, those were gouache paintings. You can paint anything with gouache and in this class, you’ll learn how and when to use different consistencies, layer details and surfaces, and paint with confidence.
