Have you ever painted nature with nature? In this workshop, not only are we inspired by the wilderness, but we will create art with it. We will paint with natural materials and incorporate colours and patterns found in nature, the seasons, and more. Students will create their own animals portraits, and finish them with paint and original ideas.
