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.
