Landscape Painting Learning Targets
The purpose of the Landscape Painting sessions is to understand how to create the illusion of three-dimensional space on a flat canvas. Each session will focus on a different style of scenery and lighting. Pick your favorite, or join us for all 4 sessions to gain a more complete understanding of how to paint with depth. These classes are OPEN TO ALL AGES. You’re never to young or old to start learning about art.
The cost of each session is $25 for a two-hour class. Register for all four sessions, and get 10% off!
