Make It Personal

April 24, 2021 - April 25, 2021

A vintage picture of black girl is seated in a white dress holding flowers in the central image. She sits on a red block of paper. There is a stylized bird in the upper left-hand corner. The background is a soft purple.


This is a perfect opportunity to make a unique and personal Mother’s Day gift! Create your own narrative-based, mixed media painting. Different materials and imagery will be used to create a story, fictional or real, about a central character. You are encouraged to bring your own ephemera that relate to the person or the story you want to create but I will also have a supply of various ephemera, specialty papers, stamps, ink, etc for you to experiment with. Chalk paint will be used to add colour, block out areas, and add depth and then you will be lead through the use of clear gesso to bridge to the final encaustic finish. The unique, warm glow of the wax finish lends mystery and history to everyone’s personal projects.

All materials are provided, however, please bring any items, papers, etc that will help to tell the story you are creating.

No experience necessary.

Workshop runs April 24-25 from 10:00am-4:00pm each day.
