Online Workshop 8/20: Learn To Paint With Gouache - Wally Dogs!



This online workshop takes place on Saturday, August 20th, from 11 AM - 1 PM PT via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login instructions before the workshop. 

In this workshop, we will explore painting with gouache - a medium that marries the fluid dreaminess of watercolor with the opaque, buildable coverage of acrylics. 

August is Furry Friends Month here at Jenny Lemons, so we will paint the ever stylish and forever sought-after Wally Dogs (Staffordshire King Charles Spaniel Figurines) of Staffordshire Pottery fame. Usually found in matching sets, we will branch out and give our pups a bit more of a sibling look while using complementary colors out of our gouache set. 

By the end of class, you'll have mastered the basics of this glorious medium, from what brushes to use to mixing, blending, and layering, and have created a piece fit for a gilded gold antique frame. 

Choose from two booking options:

1. Provide your own materials. 

2. Purchase A Supply Kit. Register by August 12th to receive your kit in time for class. Any later, please choose priority shipping at checkout!

Kit includes:

  • Set of 12 gouache tubes
  • Set of brushes
  • 5.5" x 8.5" pad of watercolor paper
