Overview

Gouache is all the rage right now and it's for a good reason. This highly demanded medium is extremely satisfying to practice. It's a creamy consistency rendering a gorgeous matte, opaque finish.

In this class, we will be learning gouache while experimenting with a new floral painting style that will allow you to try a new approach when building composition while featuring flowers' forms in a more playful way.

We'll be covering:

  • Materials
  • How gouache is used and the results it can produce
  • Doodling with gouache
  • Layering your paint
  • Exercises to break out of your comfort zone
  • Creative composition
  • Color selection
  • Interpreting real florals to record onto paper with paint

This class is for both beginning and seasoned artists. Beginners will learn gouache techniques in a loose, illustrative form, while seasoned artists can play with a transition in medium or artistic style and technique.

Your class project will challenge you to build a unique floral arrangement that screams YOU.
