Let’s get creative and try something new. Casein! Or Gouache! Each of these are great mediums for studio work and are gaining popularity for plein air painting. The both have very similar properties.

Casein is the oldest paint known to man…and one of the least expensive. A huge advantage for any artist. 

After brief introductions and discussion of the day’s events, students will learn to dive into these great mediums with attributes of watercolor and acrylic.

Spencer demonstrates step-by-step, design principles as he teaches you how to work with casein / gouache. Bring whatever of these two mediums you have. They behave very similarly and both are a joy to paint with.

Bring your lunch or several local eateries available. 






“Deep within my spirit lies a need to express myself that can only be realized through my art. My paintings are an enhanced glimpse into how I view the world around me. I tend to avoid the details and let the color and value tell the story.”
