Gouache Workshop with Aida Birritteri - Saturday, Oct 14th, 1-3pm, Oxford Municipal Building, 11 Green St., Oxford, NJ 

Aida will give us an introduction to painting with water-based gouache medium. We will explore working with the various attributes of gouache - its consistency, texture and matt finish as well as it opacity and transparency. We will create a palette by mixing colors with gouache using only two or three color pigments and creating layers with color.    

Participants to bring: A beginners set of LUKAS Gouache water based paint (WCARTS will have some paint available for those who want to try this medium before buying a set), a variety of sizes of synthetic brushes that can also be used with acrylic paints, paper towels and 2 containers for water. A large white enamel pan (or similar) to use as a palette for mixing the colors. 11x14" pad of 140# cold press watercolor paper (WCARTS will have paper available if you don't have any).  

This program is free for members, $25 for non-members (register in advance online using the button below)and was made possible, in part, through a grant from the Warren County Cultural Commission.
