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 through art in a fun, interesting and colourful way, while learning about colour theory, perspective and basic acrylic painting techniques.
This program can be flexible and adjusted by the art supply available, ages of students, and time frames.
