This course is for anyone who wants to paint beautiful landscapes, greenery, and night paintings with gouache and acrylic paints.

Creating a visual journal is a very special thing for me; it is an amazing way to preserve memories and keep my feelings alive. It's like taking my life's story and transforming it into a physical form.

In this course, I am going to show you how to create your own art journal.

We will go over how I decide what to paint, what to write in each entry, where I look for inspiration, as well as my tips and tricks on all the materials I use.

About the Instructor

Professional Acrylic and Gouache Artist, Gizem Bozkurt


Hi! I am Gizem. I studied art in 2012 in Turkey and I've been painting for 15 years. At first, all I did was pencil drawings, then I decided to take drawing classes to learn more about it.

After learning the basics of drawing at the age of 16, I gained the confidence to start colored paintings myself. I studied art teaching in Instanbul and improved myself more every day.

Then I realized that learning how to paint is not about talent, it is all about practice. So I would love to share what I've learned with you so far and help make sure every special day last for you for ever!
