About This Class


Gouache is such a versatile and fun medium. It can act just like watercolor but has the added benefit of being opaque so you can layer it like you would oil or acrylic paint. But as cool as it is, it’s often overlooked because it can be tricky to master. That’s where this class comes in!

It’s built for absolute beginners but is jam packed with information to make gouache not only approachable but fun! You will learn everything you need to know to paint gorgeous work with this magical medium and will have plenty of examples that will show you how to find your own special way of working with it.

We’ll go over:

  • Picking Paint and Other Supplies
  • The Basic Properties of Gouache
  • Flow and Opacity
  • Layering
  • Blending
  • & Even Advanced Tips and Tricks!

There will also be a fun wet in wet exercise to practice what you learn and play with the paint and a final live demonstration that will show you how to use everything we learned to create a beautiful finished piece. By the end of the class you should have the confidence to make your own gouache masterpiece!

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s dive into the world of gouache the fun and easy way! :)
