The Art Playhouse Workshop
Art Instructor Magaly Ohika
In the Art Playhouse, I will teach two classes- two Videos in a diverse array of gouache art processes. Playing with themes of joy, peace, free flow painting application and the connection process of intuition. Be ready to explore a wonderful fluidity of gouache medium. My focus is on the image as it comes to life on my paper. Not only does the course teaches you how to use gouache but also teaches you how to create images that speak to the human heart. What is your message, your voice, your goddess within? Tap into it.
Now, What is Gouache?
About this wonderful medium: Gouache is one type of watermedia, paint consisting of natural pigment, water, a binding agent (usually gum arabic or dextrin), and sometimes additional inert material. Gouache is designed to be used with opaque methods of painting.
While you begin to get ready to create on paper that is your stage think what your play will be about. Give yourself permission to explore. Open your mind and allow your eyes to roam but most importantly, your heart! Your heart is the key to a beautiful painting.
First I want you to draw with the wisdom center of your body, mind, heart, and spirit. You will explore ways to convey the elements that resonate with you applying them in your watercolor paper. Your the art storyteller of that stage. Bring your image to life! Open yourself up to a whole new way of soulful creating. It could be as simple as drawing your hands or feet touching a small pool of water. The question is, what do hands or feet signify to you? An example: Hand is a symbol of many different things. We use our hands yes, but what else? Think of hands in a symbolic way. what do you see? As you nourish your creative soul painting step out of the box and explore the artistic beauty of things that bring happiness and meaning. Open your eyes and see and then, feel it!
