In this session, we will learn the different approaches used in the Gouache technique. Gouache is a water-based medium similar to watercolour. It mixes coloured pigments with an opaque white pigment, often chalks, creating a velvety matte finish that absorbs light rather than reflecting it. It is primarily opaque, but you can make it transparent. It dries quickly but reconstitutes with a bit of water, it's easy to clean up after, and you can control it with precision.
This is a beginner-friendly workshop and is also suitable for different age groups. Using this medium, you can successfully capture the essence of an exciting idea.
