Event description
This is a 6 hour introduction to the fun medium of Gouache. All materials provided!

About this Event

More than just opaque watercolour, there is a multitude of ways to use gouache to produce wonderful artworks. This workshop will introduce you to the medium and provide you with the knowledge and skills to pursue a variety of subjects using this exciting medium. For absolute beginners to anyone interested in exploring this medium.

About the workshop:

This is a 6 hour introduction to the fun medium of Gouache. At first will cover the very basics of the medium;

  • "What is it?"
  • "How is it different from watercolour or acrylics?"
  • "How do you even pronounce gouache!?" (Apparently it's "gwahsh").

Then we will build on this knowledge through a series of exercises and hands on demonstrations that will introduce;

  • Colour and value theory.
  • Colour mixing.
  • Gouache painting techniques.
  • Gouache painting styles.

Once we have worked on these skills separately we will put them to use in painting our very own gouache landscape. We will start small with a tonal painting of the chosen landscape, then we will tackle the colour version.

My aim for this workshop is to give you the knowledge and tools to take this medium and run with it. By the end of the day you should have a small library of reference material and examples (painted by you!) to be confident to explore this medium in a style that you enjoy and might continue on to develop.

About the tutor:

My name is Kelsey and I have been painting for over 15 years now. Over those years I have tried many different mediums and methods. Gouache and watercolour are my first love and are the ones I have the most experience with. My fascination with the natural world often has me painting insects, animals, plants, and landscapes. My goal in teaching is to create a safe space for all to explore and enjoy their artistic side.

What to bring:

I completely understand that art supplies are expensive so I endeavour to provide you with all the materials needed for the workshop. However, if you own basic supplies such as graphite pencils, erasers, fine liners, etc. please do bring them along. Don't worry I will be sending out an information package to you with all the nuts and bolt of optional supplies to bring.

Bring a notebook or visual diary to take notes.

Food is delicious and important so make sure to bring a lunch, water bottle, and some snacks for while you work.
