Gosha’s Creative Dimension
Explore Creative Dimension with Gosha and learn to paint with acrylic and use mixed media.
Painting as an art therapy
A creative process is a form of self-expression and therapy that can help people to understand themselves better. Painting is about getting in touch with your feelings, finding pleasure and satisfaction, and experiencing the world from a new point of view.
Art classes with Gosha teach you the art of acrylic painting and mixed media in a fun and enjoyable way. With our classes, you will be guided by an experienced artist who will show you all the tips and tricks of painting.
Learn different painting techniques
The course will cover how to paint trees, skies, water, flowers, snow, etc. It will also help you to deal with challenging aspects of painting such as perspective or colour combinations.

My latest drawing with Derwent Lightfast Coloured Pencils is of rich green poplar trees in Castle Park. In this post you can find out about the drawing techniques I used to create the leaves, grass, sky, shadow etc.
This is the 4-step process of painting Cyclists Riding Into Sunset. From watercolour pencils, through splashing inks and drizzling gloss.
Sketching with watercolour pencils and using the camera on your phone to record your observations. This vlog is about my artistic endeavours. I called it ‘Sketchbook Journey’ because my sketchbook would always accompany me when going out, whether out with the dogs in a park, waiting for son at the school or generally going somewhere…
Collage can be done in many different ways, but the most common way is to cut up pieces of paper and glue them onto a surface. The artist can then use other materials such as paint, ink, or pencils to add colour or texture.
It is a great way to play and experiment with different media.
How Light Works
Light is the most important element in painting. It is what creates the mood and atmosphere, it can also be used to create a sense of depth and dimensionality.
The direction of the light source will determine how shadows are cast on objects in your picture.
Acrylic Painting Techniques
The acrylic paint can be applied in many different ways, such as with a brush, palette knife, or even fingers.
Different painting techniques will allow you to show texture or create the illusion of depth in your paintings, as well as blend colours in such a way that the sky will look perfect.
“I really enjoyed Gosha’s Art Class so much that I’ve been on it for a whole year and I absolutely love it! This is a place where you can go to have fun and enjoy yourself while learning new skills. I am still an amateur at painting, but I have improved tremendously thanks to the help of Gosha’s instructions. The atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable and there are a lot of great visuals to choose from. I feel like I’ve improved a lot in my painting.“
Let’s make something beautiful together.
Gosha is a painter and art educator. Blessed with synaesthesia, a condition which means blending of the senses. She sees words in colours, with light and in space.
Gosha has an insatiable desire to share her experience of synaesthesia with the world and show it as she senses it. To achieve this, she uses household gloss paint freely dripped from a palette knife to express the aliveness of lines and their energy. Mixing inks with paints to saturate the colours on her canvas augments their power and spreads the enormous feeling of joy they emanate.
