Kids Botanical Painting Workshop

with Kelsey Doherty


Join Ms. Kelsey for a week-long indoor/outdoor workshop painting botanical arrangements and gardens in local Princeton!

Students will discuss perspective, values, color mixing, and more using gouache paint. 

Gouache is a historical painting medium that has been used in various forms dating back to ancient Egypt. The paint we know and use today became wildly popular during the 19th century and was often used in conjunction with pastels and pencils in mixed media format.

Gouache is similar to watercolor but has been modified to be opaque. This gives artists the ability to build layers similarly to oil but leaves a chalky matte finish.

Experiment with this medium this summer!
