The semi-opacity of gouache is ideal for painting over sketches, and its creamy consistency and fast drying rate make it perfect for use in a sketchbook–even a sketchbook with thin pages!

In this class, we will briefly cover sketching techniques,  then focus on the use of a limited palette of gouache paints to color in our sketches, learning how to use gouache and mix colors as we go. You can bring a sketchbook that already contains sketches you want to color, or just an idea in your mind!


  • Sketchbook (any type, but my favorite is Fabriano EcoQua Sketchbooks)
  • Color pencil (Make it a color that coordinates with your gouaches!)
  • White gouache
  • 2-3 gouache colors of your choice
    • Note: You can bring gouache in pans or tubes. If you have gouache pans, a small tin works well to keep them clean, and also serves as a mixing palette.
  • Small round brush OR small water brush
  • Something to use as a palette, such as a lid.
