For the day Lisa will be introducing what gouache is and how to use it. She will cover the different surfaces to paint on and water ratios in painting. Printmaking will be incorporated by the use of monotype. As well as covering the various brushes and brands that are best. Lisa has 10 plus years of experience as an instructor in art and has been using gouache ever since. It is great for sketching and as additional vibrancy in watercolor painting.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn to draw or paint, or want to sharpen your art skills, Fridays at Gilmers Arts is the place to be. Classes are structured in an open-studio format, each student working on their individual projects and media, with individual instruction and attention as the focus. Beginner, intermediate or professional students are all welcome, and any media, from oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel or pencil. The opportunity for the class to learn techniques is offered several times throughout the sessions, to reinforce the fundamentals of drawing and painting. Line, light, shadow, form, value, contrast, perspective, design, composition are just some of the subjects discussed, as well as valuable information on the artist materials as well as the history of art and artists. These demonstrations are offered in an easy to understand style, designed to enrich each and every student. You will also enjoy the class camaraderie and the welcoming, friendly atmosphere.
