Be free to express your creative side using one of the oldest mediums, painting with molten filtered and pigmented beeswax, in this exciting Intro to Encaustic Painting workshop. The earliest applications of encaustic wax paint was done by the artists of Ancient Greece- hence, where the Greek word “enkaustikos” meaning “to burn in” originated. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to create your own unique artwork (about 3 pieces) that you will feel proud to hang on your wall or gift to someone special.
You will learn to make your own encaustic paint, how to set up your own home studio, and tips and techniques on how to use this highly versatile medium. You will have the option of creating art using just the medium as paint, or creating mixed media art with the medium as a binder.
Tuition: $225 per person (includes all high quality materials)

At Ocean Art Studio & Gallery in Ganges on Salt Spring Island, I teach art to youth and adults, encouraging them to set aside their fears and insecurities, to relax, have fun and not take themselves too seriously. Sometimes it just takes getting out of your comfort zone and trying something new to help free up creative blockages. One of the most enjoyable moments teaching is when a student begins to “see” differently for the first time. That’s a great discovery to be a part of, and one that continues to grow beyond the studio into everyday life. I’ve been teaching art since 2006, throughout North and Central America.
Other workshops offered: Kids Art Camps (Fridays, Spring Break, and Summer Camps), Paint Parties (Acrylic), Intro to Oil Painting, Love Affair with Colour (Watercolour), Creative Journaling (Drawing, Ink and Watercolour), Intuitive Abstracts, as well as Private Lessons in any medium. Visit http://oceanartstudio.eventbrite.com or email me to learn more.
You can find the Studio in “Merchants’ Mews” above the Barber Shop. Visits welcome Mon-Sat (and most Sundays) between 12-4.
