Hi fellow art lovers and artists

I am planning to run an Abstract painting workshop using cold wax, mixed media

At Studio 42, Barcelona, Spain, during the week of 25-29 September 2019. I still have some spaces available and would love to have you join me. 10.00am to 4.00pm each day. This workshop includes some amazing tours around the beautiful city of Barcelona from 4.30pm to approximately 8pm.

Plus an opportunity for you to exhibit your works for one week in Studio 42, Barcelona, after the workshop. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to get some quality professional development, tour many of the exciting galleries and museums of Barcelona with a local guide and exhibit your works in a professional centrally located gallery. 

On Friday September 29, you will have the opportunity to gain valuable feedback on your work which will include how you might incorporate cold wax mixed media into your own ongoing body of work, whether you work in acrylic, water colour, inks or any other medium. Throughout this workshop I will be showing several short power point presentations on; Developing your Personal Voice; Understanding how the Elements of Design can work for you, tips and recommended texts.  I will also be discussing how to take a different approach to developing creativity.

Practicing Artist/Educator for over 30 years

I deliver both Cold Wax Mixed Media Workshops and Encaustic Hot Wax Workshops from my home studio. 


I will be running an introductory printmaking program from my Doonan Studios early 2019. For expressions of interest contact Cheryl at chezartist@gmail.com 


ENCAUSTIC PLAYSHOP/WORKSHOP

 Introduction to Encaustic, Collage & Photo Encaustic Painting - Three full Days

20/21/22 August 2019. 10 am - 4 pm, $400.00 

 (only two places left in this workshop, please contact me asap to reserve your place.

Location: Doonan, Qld Australia (15 minute drive from beautiful Noosa into the hinterlands)

Encaustic is one of the oldest forms of painting, with paint made from pure pigment mixed with wax and castor wax. The mixture is applied hot, then reheated to fuse the layers together.

This program is designed for both beginners and experienced artists.  I will introduce you to  techniques involving collage, painting, and layering using wax in an assortment of vivid colours. You'll learn how to lay down the wax without air bubbles and get a smooth finish.

If you haven't tried encaustic painting before, be prepared to be seduced. This medium is very forgiving. I'll have lots of collage materials available for you to experiment with or you can  just  layer colours of rich pigmented wax paint. You can work in any style you choose.

All materials will be provided. Topics will include: a brief history of encaustic,  making the wax medium, controlling your paint, adding paper, using natural materials, an introduction to photo encaustic, safety issues and home set up. Most students leave class with 2 - 3 finished works, however the emphasis is always on learning the techniques not completed artworks.

Confirmation, directions to my studio and additional information will be emailed to each participant upon registration. Space is limited to 6 students so classes fill quickly.

NOTE

A deposit of $100.00 is required to secure your place in any of my workshops. Your $100.00 deposit is fully refundable if cancellation  is received 14 days prior to the workshop. If cancellation is a last minute event then you will be offered a place in a future workshop of your choice, your original $100.00 deposit will be used as a credit. 


All materials for this workshop/Playshop will be provided. You may wish to purchase extra boards which will be available from my studio.  Email :  chezartist@gmail.com for further details and information on how to book your place.

Amica Whincop Art·  

Holy shiznicks, I've just been christened into the world of encaustic by Cheryl McGannon   in one of her 2 day workshops. She is a master of the medium and had me at the words "blow torch and melted beeswax"!!! I've a long way to go to experiment with this technique and how to incorporate into my work, but am so grateful to have been introduced to it. Cheryl teaches workshops at her oasis of a studio in Doonan and is a highly sought after QLD artist. She is a flamin legend!!! Book yourself in! 

 
Marg Watt - FANTASTIC workshops if you are contemplating. Just do yourself a favour and learn from Cheryl
