Discovery Through Sketchbooks: Painting With Gouache
June 2, 2019 – June 8, 2019
In this workshop students learn how to paint with gouache in their sketchbooks, a personal space to explore ideas, record thoughts and discover the world. Gouache is a flexible paint that’s workable even when dry, allowing participants to express techniques from realistic rendering to expressive spills of color. Through en plein air painting excursions, lectures, demonstrations and critiques students will develop a sophisticated sketchbook in gouache that documents their experiences in the city of Gatlinburg and the surrounding Great Smoky Mountains. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
