Grab your gouache and travel! The flexibility of gouache makes it a perfect choice for the traveling artist. Just a few supplies easily stowed in a small backpack are always ready use when the artistic mood strikes. No set up….no mess… no hassle! Gouache is an opaque watercolor medium that allows the artist to work from dark to light which makes it a perfect addition to the oil painter’s artistic arsenal. Learn how to use this versatile medium as a means for creating preparatory field sketches or to produce fully realized paintings.  Participants will have the opportunity to work from their own photos, still life set-ups or outdoors within close proximity to the Museum.  In addition, there will be discussion on how to create your own personalized sketchbooks in order to document your travels in paint.
