Painting Yukon Sunsets and Getting Inspired Through Nature with Maya Rosenberg

In this class students will use acrylic to paint their own mini Yukon sunset landscapes, guided step by step. We'll connect to nature through colours and create our own painting based on the natural scenery of the Yukon. We'll learn how nature can be reflected though art in a fun, interesting and colourful way, while learning about colour theory, perspective and basic acrylic painting techniques.
