Gouache Weekend with Lisbeth Firmin
March 9 @ 9:30 am – March 10 @ 4:00 pm
Often described as a middle ground between water color and acrylic painting, gouache paints are a water-medium paint that is great for creating vibrant, colorful paintings – and it’s perfect for beginners.
During this inspiring weekend workshop participants will work with painter Lisbeth Firmin in an exploration of one of her favorite mediums. At the beginning of each day, Lisbeth Firmin will lead a painting demonstration followed by participant practice from still-life and other source materials. Each day will end with an engaging discussion from everyone of all the paintings done that day.
- A decent set of gouache paints (can be purchased below with your registration)
- Watercolor Pad – 9″ x 12″ or larger
- Brushes – A variety of water-based synthetic brushes, from 1″ or 1.25″ to .75″ or .5″. An inexpensive set is fine.
Teaching Artist Bio
Lisbeth Firmin is a contemporary American realist whose imagery explores the relationship between people and their environment… depicting modern life while exploring timeless themes of solitude and isolation; interpenetrating the light and shadow that describe the human form in a specific moment. Firmin skates the rails between realism and abstraction the much the same way David Park, or some of Richard Diebenkorn’s figurative work, does.
