The Studio Sampler Class Nine: Color Notes in Gouache with Jessica Stammen

Saturday, May 4, 9 a.m.– noon

Painter Charles Hawthorne wrote, "It is beautifully simple, painting - all we have to do is to get the color notes in their proper relation." In this class we will focus on painting as observing and recording notes of color. We will work in gouache, a water-based medium heavier and more opaque than watercolor, with great color saturation, suitable for quick ideation or finished works. We will begin with a sequencing warm-up and move on to complete 1-2 postcard sized works. Participants are encouraged to bring their favorite brushes for water media if they have any.
 
While a student at The Cooper Union School of Art, instructor Jessica Stammen loved and excelled at painting and color theory. She went on to earn her MA at NYU before returning to midcoast Maine where she exhibits her paintings regionally, teaches through the Camden Rockport Middle School's Horizons Arts program, and publishes a blog about the wonders of living in Maine.
