Mixed Media Workshops Featuring Ceracolors

Joya Paul is a mixed media encaustic artist who is offering mixed media workshops featuring Ceracolors. Joya sells her artwork and hosts art workshops at the Second Door Studio in the Distillery District of Toronto.

Join Joya to create a unique piece of art and share an experience unleashing your inner artist. You will beĀ amazedĀ at what you can create in this workshop! Work with your own imagery or the collection of images she supplies to create gorgeous and meaningful artwork that you can be proud to say you made.

Ceracolors replicates many of the qualities of traditional encaustic without the set up of traditional encaustic. Ceracolors are water soluble and non toxic, made with ingredients that are found in food and cosmetics. There is also no need for ventilation, special tools or brushes, making it ideal to be able to paint at home. Our workshop will delve into the many techniques and approaches for water-based wax paint. At the workshop you will explore using wax paint as oil, watercolor, encaustic and collage/photo transfer. This special six hour workshop will be taught by Heather Gentleman, who is an accomplished visual artist currently completing her Masters of Fine Art at the prestigious Chelsea College of the Arts, London, UK. She is a gifted teacher with over 20 years of teaching experience.

The workshop is designed to suit various experience levels. Minimum age 12 years with an adult. Teens with a love of art are welcome to attend.

Please contact Joya at info@joyapaul.com, if you have any questions or want to arrange a direct payment to book your spot in the class. If you wish to attend both days of the weekend, the cost is $250 and you can register directly with Joya to save on fees. For her regular mixed media encaustic classes please see the events on her web site.
