The Art Gallery of Bancroft is excited to offer an intriguing workshop focusing on the Encaustic technique with noted Artist Jane Burgess.  The workshop takes place in conjunction with Jane’s solo exhibition at the Gallery.

 

Workshop Instructor

I have participated in many oil painting and encaustic courses over the past couple of decades in the Guelph and Elora area.    My studio is in the village of Elora Ontario.  I have had works shown in various galleries, exhibits and studio tours in this area.   I have taught many introductory and a few advanced courses in Encaustic and look forward to sharing this amazing journey with the Bancroft community this summer.  

 

Workshop Description

In this workshop, we will cover the basics of Encaustic.  You will be exposed to the materials required and basic painting techniques to get you started on the most amazing, rewarding journey of painting with hot beeswax.   We will learn how to use various fusing tools, how to mix colors and methods for applying and scraping off the wax.  We will also go over some simple collage and photo transfer techniques.    You will find that in this relaxed workshop that the rules are few and the pleasure endless.

  • wood panels;
  • beeswax;
  • oil paints;
  • fusing and scraping tools; and
  • some simple collage and photo transfer pieces.
