Fantastical and Mystical Oil Landscape Painting (Advanced Course)
In this Course we will be exploring and making various themes of Fantastical and Mystical Landscapes using Oil Paint, such as Dream Art, Cosmic Art, Mystical and Elemental Nature art, and Abstract landscape art. This is an advanced Oil painting class where some Oil painting experience is required. In all my classes I like to teach and incorporate mindfulness practices in the art making! Hope to see you there !
**This is Equivalent to a College level Course** but a lot more affordable !
