Event description

Description

This Introduction to Gouache Workshop is taught by illustrator Emma Block. The workshop will focus on developing skills and applying techniques allowing you to grow in confidence and start to develop your own style. This workshop is appropriate for both total beginners and those with some gouache experience. The workshop will start with a demonstration allowing you to become familiar with the unique properties of gouache and different effects that can be created. You'll then have plenty of time to practice mixing colours, experimenting paint effects and build confidence using the medium. In the second half of the workshop we'll move onto sketching from life and composing a piece, using the techniques we've learnt and thinking about composition and colour palette.

*You will be given a complete set of materials which you can take away after class, including guide sheets, paper, a brush and a set Windsor and Newton Gouache worth RRP £40.

* We'll start with colour theory, colour mixing and exercises to practice making simple shapes and brush strokes.

* You'll then work on a final piece, sketching and painting from life, with plenty of hands on guidance and encouragement from the tutor. By the end of the workshop you'll be well on your way to developing your own unique painting style.

Light refreshments and all necessary materials are provided.

Unfortunately classes are non refundable. Swapping workshop dates is at the discretion of the organizer. If you need to rearrange a class please get in touch as early as possible.
