Creating a Mini Northern Lights Landscape with Maya Rosenberg

In this class students paint their own mini landscape of the northern lights, guided step by step. This workshop is inspired by the night sky, and how it can be just as engaging as the daytime sky, filled with bright colours and ideas to explore. We’ll learn about using acrylics paints and blending colours, the basics of colour theory, how to make colours dance like the northern lights and more! At the end of the workshop each student will have their own masterpiece to take home.
