On my gouache!  Ready to try something new?  Gouache (pronounced ghu-wash) paintings have a distinctly saturated, matte appearance letting them stand out from a crowd.  Similiar to water colour paints, gouache is fun to learn.

This workshop is a perfect for all skill and experience levels.  Beginners and non-painters are encouraged to join. You’ll be learning and experimenting in a fun, low stress environment.

In this workshop you’ll learn:

  • Gouache basics – what is it? How is it used?
  • Colour theory and mixing – a chance to play with colour and paint
  • Landscape composition basics
  • Layering techniques

If time permits Michelle will also have acrylic gouache to experiment with as well.

Participants can work step-by-step through a seascape with Michelle, or may choose their own subject/composition. There will be a plenty of time to experiment and play with the gouache before moving on to our final piece. You’ll leave with at least one finished 8 X 10  painting on paper and a stack of colourful experiments to proudly share with family and friends.

All supplies will be supplied by the instructor and will include:

  • Gouache paint
  • Paint palettes
  • Brushes
  • Mixed media paper
  • Pencils and erasers
  • Rulers
