In this course you will be introduced to the versatile medium of gouache paint. You will be guided through different paintings during the course to explore what makes it such a favoured medium by artists- both of the past- such as JMW Turner, and why it is having a revival. Gouache paint can be used alongside watercolour paint and other mediums making it a great medium to have in your kit.

This course is suitable for beginners, those returning to gouache, and those who just want to join in.
