Exploring Colours and Textures in Nature with Maya Rosenberg

Nature is beautiful and varied, but it is not random. Nature is physics, math, and it is art. In this workshop we will create art inspired by the patterns, colours and textures found in nature and animals. Each student will create their own painting of varied natural elements in vivid colours and we will discuss the new ideas together.
