Egg Tempera and Gouache - NEW!

Egg tempera is a very old painting medium. With the invention of oil paint, it went out of favor. This medium is extremely durable and is applied on board or very heavy paper. The colors are light and transparent. Gouache is an opaque watercolor and because of this it is more forgiving than watercolor. In this class, you will learn how to use gouache paints for creating small-scale works on paper. You will come up with your own designs or reproduce designs from photographs or other sources. Drawing experience is required.
