Expand your water media repertoire! Gouache (pronounced “gwash”) is similar to watercolor. Composed of opaque pigments thickened with gum arabic, gouache differs from watercolor in its higher pigment content, more brilliant light-reflecting quality and opacity that allows you to paint over mistakes. By varying application, gouache can be transparent or opaque, and you’ll learn to choose the best approach for your subject. Through demonstration and practice, discover the methods for applying gouache to create a finished botanical plate from a live specimen. Fee: $210 member, $265 non-member. Prerequisites: Pencil I, Color Mixing, Water Color I (Light on Form or Perspective strongly recommended).
