Creatively celebrate fall – the season of cosy colours! In this two-hour workshop, you will learn how to paint a gouache landscape inspired by the beautiful warm and cool tones of fall.

Using just three primary colours and white, you will explore how to develop an underpainting, and build it into a complete work of art. Gabrielle will also discuss the beautiful watercolour-like qualities of gouache, as well as the layering abilities that make it stand out as a truly unique medium. The perfect workshop for gouache enthusiasts of all levels.

Open to beginners and intermediates.
Ages 13 to 99.
