Spring 2019


Plein Air Painting in Gouache
A two-day workshop in painting outdoors with gouache (opaque watercolor), a fun and forgiving medium that allows for easier corrections than transparent watercolor.

Gouache paint will be provided for the workshop; a list will be provided of other suggested materials for students to bring. Location: Battery Park, New Castle, DE. Instructor: Charley Parker; $40 per session; Saturdays, June 1 & June 8, 2019; 9:00 am – 12:00 noon; Rain Date July 6. Open to beginners and experienced painters, 18 and over. (Please note: the dates for this workshop were originally listed as May 25 and June 1, the correct dates are June 1 & June 8.)
