Gouache (pronounced gwash) is also called opaque watercolor medium. Underused and generally underappreciated, this medium has been used by classical painters for centuries, alone or in conjunction with other media. Gouache is clean, vibrant, fast-drying, and odorless--plus it plays well with other in mixed-media work. Artist Barbara Hranilovich will introduce participants to gouache first by walking participants through the basics of color theory and then through course exercises, that will help participants learn how to work effectively in gouache.This is a perfect class for any beginning painter, or for anyone who wants to discover and fall in love with the properties of gouache. You’ll go home with some skills to help you as you work in any medium, along with color studies to reference for future work. All skill levels are welcome and no previous experience is required. Students must provide their own appropriate water media brushes. Please contact college@interlochen.org with any questions.
