demonstration of the River Canyon tutorial
techniques to create mountain range dreamscapes
with snow. This event is hosted by the San Diego

create various types of landscapes, snowy
mountain scenes, even sandy desert dunes or
frozen planets and scenes reminiscent of
Monument Valley/Canyon lands, and talk about how

this creative process. We'll finish with a short

There will be a special promotional discount for
those attending. If you can't make it, read
