In this unique class with Bunny Paivine, you will learn unconventional techniques and embrace your sense of play while painting Yosemite’s landscapes with acrylic paint. Students will let go of expectations and get back in touch with their inner 5-year-old who wasn’t afraid to commit to making marks on a canvas. In this class students will use palette knives instead of brushes, and for those who aren’t afraid of getting a little messy, finger-painting techniques are also an option! Bunny will work with the class step-by-step to help them create a painting to take home.
