What you'll learn in this painting class:

Gouache is the only water-based medium that can be reactivated at any time. Although the word originates from guazzo, meaning watercolor, its thick, opaque properties make it a forgiving medium producing different results from traditional watercolor. Get acquainted with a medium that dates back to the middle ages, and add it to your repertoire! Check the supply list online.

Workshop fees (minus a processing fee) are refundable up until one week prior to the program. 

If the Director of IT and Administration is notified at least one week prior to the scheduled start date, a processing fee of $50 is charged for dropping adult classes, YFA classes, or workshops costing $100 or more or a $25 processing fee is charged for dropping programs costing under $100.

Students are responsible for notifying the Art Center Director of IT and Administration that they wish to drop a class or workshop; not attending class does not constitute an official withdrawal from courses or cancellation of tuition or fees.
