Beginner and experienced painters are welcome to come and spend the day playing with acrylic gouache methods and techniques while learning the basics. Acrylic gouache is opaque, matte acrylic paint. The opacity means it has excellent coverage, the acrylic binder means it is waterproof when dry, so you can over paint without smearing and the matte finish gives a velvety surface. Students can plan on creating 4-6 paintings in this one day workshop.
