Gouache is a water-based media that falls into the watercolor family of pigments, but it is opaque. What this means is that the paint is not transparent as traditional watercolors. What this means is that light to dark any more. Since gouache allows you to apply light colors over dark in much the same way that you can in acrylics.

In this class, you will learn how to handle this versatile medium by making at least one painting per week. We will work from a still life, landscape and a subject of your choice.

Cancellation & Class Policies

Cancellation Policy for Classes and One-Day Workshops in Petoskey

Student Withdrawal
Requests for cancellation by the student at least seven (7) days prior to the first day of class will be honored (minus a $20 processing fee).  NO REFUNDS will be given for a student cancellation made less than seven (7) days in advance of the first day of the class.

When Public Schools of Petoskey are closed due to inclement weather, CTAC-Petoskey classes are cancelled. We will do our best to provide a make-up opportunity for the missed class. Refunds will not be given if the student is unable to attend the rescheduled session of class. Workshops and one-time classes will be handled on a per-class basis. School of Ballet students are asked to make up the missed class in an alternate session approved by their instructor.

Minimum Enrollment
Crooked Tree Arts Center reserves the right to cancel any class that does not meet its minimum student enrollment prior to the first class session. If a class is cancelled by CTAC for lack of enrollment, CTAC will offer a full refund to the student in the manner in which tuition was paid.  (Cash payments will be refunded by check.)
