Concept:

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.

Activities:

We learn through demonstrations, individual and group feedback, as well as group discussion and ample studio time.
