Space to connect, express, have fun, play and create.
Gyl runs online Art Programs throughout the year, from having fun exploring and playing with watercolours, mark making, exploring layers, natural inspiration, to acrylic abstract landscape painting.
The main purpose for these programs is for people to create space in their day and life to create, connect and have fun. Often the art world holds the belief only certain people can do art or only certain styles are okay, I am here to bust that belief and bring back peoples connection to themselves to have fun, enjoy, explore and connect back to that playfulness kids have when the paint or make things.
No workshop is ever about telling you have to paint or be a certain way, they are about building skills, exploring and looking at the world in a different way. True success no matter what you do, to me when you express from what's inside of you, not how the world wants or has told you how to be.
The courses follow a 6 week or 4 week format of weekly recorded video lessons which you are able to watch in your own space and time, homework, a private social media page to connect with other members and share work, ask questions, discuss your experience, with check in mid-weekly emails and 1:1 email or sky support if needed.
No two courses are ever the same, whilst we might explore the same topic in one of the weeks, e.g colour, you will always get something different or more from each course, videos aren't reused, everything is fresh and constantly growing.
Materials The basic materials you need for 'Go With The Flow' are some brushes, watercolours and watercolour paper, you don't have to buy the expensive stuff. It's also handy to have things like pens, charcoal, oil pastels, biro pens, sharpies, paint pens etc if you want to, these aren't a necessity but can help you evolve, grow and explore your work more.
