Acrylic Gouache Painting Workshop at Blick Berkeley | Blick Art Materials | Saturday, 13. April 2019

Join us at Blick Art Materials in Berkeley for an exclusive Acrylic Gouache Painting Workshop!
Create an ambient bonfire painting from observation using Liquitex Acrylic Gouache on Arches 140 lb Cold Press watercolor paper. Incorporate gesture drawing and utilize color theory to paint layers of tones that define color temperature and value.
Acrylic Gouache combines the best of both mediums — it's matte, quick drying, water-mixable, and water-resistant when dry. Developed by artist Jimmy Leslie, painters will learn to block in color and explore color mixing, color temperature, and application techniques.
New Jersey born and bred, Jimmy Leslie received his MFA from the New York Academy of Art. He spent 15 years as a college art professor, and has been a Resident Artist for Winsor & Newton and Liquitex since 2009. Jimmy loves pushing boundaries with diverse modes of expression in oil, acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media collage. His artwork has been exhibited throughout the country.
Workshop recommended for ages 13+
