Introduction to Encaustic Painting

During this 2 day workshop you will learn the basics of working with this exciting and ancient way of painting with melted natural beeswax that is mixed with colour pigments. Using gentle heat, each layer of wax is fused to the layer beneath.  We will be working from a warm palette and experimenting with different tools used to texture the wax and create rich and wonderful surfaces.

I hold both a degree in Fine Arts from York University and a Bachelor of Education from University of Toronto.  Part of my goal for this workshop is to encourage you to develop your ideas of expression.

Cost: $285.00
Material Fee: $125.00 paid to the instructor at the beginning of the first day.
Number of Participants: 2-4
Prerequisites: None, no need to bring anything along except your imagination and your inner muse.

Two day workshop
10:00am – 4:00pm each day
