About This Class

c40e4e24

This class is all about finding YOUR particular joy with using PAINT! Sharing all of the golden nuggets I’ve learned along my journey of learning how to paint, we’ll do a basic overview of watercolor, gouache, and acryla gouache, followed by a series of exercises for each paint to break down different ways to use and enjoy them, so you can find your very favorites and repeat them over and over again. Friendly for beginners and experienced painters feeling stuck in a sticky paint rut.
