Put your imagination to the test in a fun and exciting workshop that explores gouache and collage. Gouache is a magnificent, water-based paint used for creating rich, opaque and velvety surfaces. In this course, gouache and collage are merged to generate dynamic and many-layered works on paper. Pochoir, a hand-stenciling process, is introduced as a way to build collage-like surfaces using gouache in an additive method. Students also explore alternative collage materials as a way to achieve a richer surface texture and color palette.
Media & Techniques:
Students use pochoir (gouache on paper), collage, adhesives, color mixing, cutting methods and image layering.
We learn through demonstrations, individual and group feedback, as well as group discussion and ample studio time.
