Summer 2024 Watercolor and Gouache Classes at LGS Recreation

This summer I am teaching three different classes at LGS Recreation at the end of July and August.

Here is the list and dates of the classes

NEW- Watercolor on Yupo

About this Course

Learn to paint watercolor on Yupo (Synthetic Paper). Experiment with fun techniques on synthetic paper. But what exactly is Yupo? Yupo is a synthetic paper that is tree-free. It is a waterproof, tear-resistant, very durable, smooth, and 100% recyclable paper. The water and pigment do not absorb into the paper so it allows you to manipulate the paint until the water evaporates creating super fun watery textures. It is an ideal medium those who want to experiment with less traditional watercolor techniques.

Dates: Tuesdays July 23 and July 30, 2024

Time: 10 am to 12:30 pm

Price: $100

Experimenting with Gouache

About this Course

In this class, you will learn to paint with gouache (opaque watercolor). Gouache is a wonderful medium that allows you to layer bold colors with different blending techniques. The instructor will have a project for each class where you can paint-a-long while you familiarize yourself with gouache paint by exploring tones, brushstroke techniques and understanding color combinations. No previous experience or knowledge is required for this class.
