Gouache for Beginners | Jan Lawnikanis

About the workshop

Although somewhat similar to watercolour paints, gouache requires some different techniques in its application. Its unique qualities are perfect for illustrations, poster-style work and subjects with a lot of detail. Learn how to use this medium with confidence and create an artwork with vibrant flat colour. As we’ll be working with the CMYK primary colours, some colour mixing techniques will be included.

Who is this workshop suitable for?

Although this workshop is designed for beginners in gouache, those with some previous experience are also welcome.

What do I need to bring?

Use of all painting materials will be available.

Please bring your lunch and snacks or you can purchase from cafes close by.

What else is provided?

  • tea and coffee (please bring your own cup)
  • a friendly, supportive and encouraging learning environment
  • connection to the Bienarté art community
