Watercolor Art Lessons Class

with LK Papadakis, Local Artist

Gouache paint (opaque watercolor) is a fun and forgiving medium. It is especially great for small paintings and journaling. It is super easy to photograph or scan for social media, because it’s matte and velvety finish has no annoying glare.


If you are curious about gouache paint, and you want to try it out, we would be pleased to have you in our class, taught by L.K. Papadakis. Gouache is particularly well suited to small paintings, journals, cards, and even trading cards. This is a two-part class. Each session is two hours and 30 minutes, scheduled two weeks apart.
