Gouache Weekend with Lisbeth Firmin

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 2/23/24 | 2/23/24

The Roxbury Arts Group is excited to welcome contemporary American realist Lisbeth Firmin for an inspiring weekend workshop of gouache painting. Often described as a middle ground between watercolor and acrylic painting, gouache paints are a water-medium paint that is great for creating vibrant, colorful paintings – and it’s perfect for beginners. Students can opt for an intensive one or two day workshop which will take place at the Headwaters Arts Center, 66 Main St in Stamford, on Saturday and Sunday, March 9 and 10 from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM. The fee for a one-day workshop is $75 and $125 for two days. All necessary materials are available for purchase through our website with registration for an additional $15. 

During this workshop, participants will work with painter Lisbeth Firmin in an exploration of one of her favorite mediums. At the beginning of each day, Lisbeth Firmin will lead a painting demonstration followed by participant practice from still-life and other source materials. Each day will end with participants engaging in a discussion of all the paintings done that day.

Teaching artist Lisbeth Firmin is a contemporary American artist whose imagery explores the relationship between people and their environment, depicting modern life while exploring timeless themes of solitude and isolation, and interpenetrating the light and shadow that describe the human form in a specific moment. Firmin skates the rails between realism and abstraction in much the same way as David Park or Richard Diebenkorn.

Don’t miss this chance to expand your artistic horizons in gouache with Lisbeth Firmin! Join us at Headwaters Arts Center for one or two days of gouache on March 9 and 10. Registration and additional information is available at or by calling 607-214-6040.
