Enjoy a relaxing day of art and design using gouache to create your own cherry blossom painting.
Ema, who has travelled extensively throughout Japan training in art techniques across a variety of mediums, will teach you how to work with gouache (an opaque watercolour) to produce your own original painting to take home. You will learn how to work from a basic concept design, and using shapes and shadows, you will work your way to the finished product. Ema will guide you through the techniques and materials she uses in doing her own illustration and painting work.
Gouache is an opaque water colour which Ema loves to use - it gives you a milky matte finish so it does behave differently to the traditional water colour paints that you may have used prior. You will take away your wonderful finished work, plus new skills which will enable you to further your own painting/sketch in your own time.
This class is not just for budding or accomplished artists. It is for everyone to enjoy a relaxing day of art and design with Ema and is suitable for all. You need bring only yourself. All materials are provided for this course. Tea and coffee wil be available in the staffroom.
