In this acrylic painting class with artist Jeff Hemming, students will study different features of the Yosemite landscape, consider colors and textures and discuss composition. Students will learn the basics of painting on location in Yosemite with acrylic paints. Jeff will share his love of Yosemite and his tips and tricks for creating a successful composition. Students will walk away with an original acrylic painting — and a closer connection to Yosemite.
