Aurora Borealis Night Skies Watercolor Painting

Date/Time: Sunday, February 19th at 1:30pm - 4:30pm

Instructor: Carolyn Runnells

Class Fee: $45

In February we are headed out to view the night skies. Nevada is blessed to have the Great Basin National Park designated as one of the best spots to see the stars by the International Dark Sky Association. However, to see and paint the aurora borealis we're headed to Northern Maine.  

This class is suitable for beginners and those with some watercolor experience. We’ll use a credit card to carve out rocks along the rocky Maine shore.  

If you are interested and have no watercolor experience or supplies, I can provide all supplies for a $5.00 materials fee. If you already have watercolor supplies to bring them to class. If you are wondering about other supplies you may need feel free to email me.

Please register and pay for the class by emailing Carolyn at crunnellsart@gmail.com .  Carolyn can receive payment by Paypal, Zelle, Venmo or send a check by emailing Carolyn for the address.
