Gouache Miniatures Workshop April 2023
Sunday 2nd April 10:00am - 4.30pm
All Supplies included - You may bring your own brushes if you like!
This is a beginner friendly workshop which will be diving into the world of gouache! This beautiful medium has had a resurgence in the art world over the last few years. Originally used by graphic designers because of it's editability, this water-based medium is a favourite of both our staff & students. It is the sibling of watercolour, made from the same stuff, but is used opaquely rather than transparent like watercolour. The effect gives an almost oil-like look to paintings. In this workshop we will be working with the lovely HIMI gouache palettes.
On the day we'll be showing you how to control the medium, layer it and blend it. We always love to give the students a chance to practice a little with the medium before we jump into our paintings. Once we have experienced & understood the medium, we will spend the rest of the day creating our miniature gouaches. Our teaching will be mostly 1 on 1 as we find individual feedback has the best results for students!
We will break for lunch during this workshop so feel free to BYO lunch.
We look forward to introducing you to the wonderful medium gouache is!
