Gouache can be transparent and washy like watercolor or opaque and used in a more graphic style. In this class we will experiment with both styles and several in between, starting with freeform flowers and ending with patterns and doodles on flower shapes. We will take a look at real flowers volume and form and figure out how to translate it to a 2D shape on watercolor paper. In other words – we make watery blobs of color look like pretty flowers. There is no experience necessary and all levels of experience are welcome. Students will take home a paint palette, watercolor tablet, two mini-posters of painting techniques, and get to try out different brands of gouache.
