This workshop is designed to invite you to explore painting with melted wax. Encaustic art is an ancient technique using heated wax to create colour, texture and depth. It teaches letting go and releasing the urge to control. Synchronicity happens when we align with the flow of the universe rather than insisting it flow our way. When we let go of tensions and stress, the magic happens. Encaustic art is an amazing medium that anyone can do. It enables a return to childlike play with colour and imagination; a moment out of time that is free of struggle and worry.

During this workshop, Dorothy will demonstrate how to paint with heated wax. Using their own imaginations, participants will develop their own creative artwork. During the time that participants are working on their own material, Dorothy will provide individual coaching and tips. This course is suitable whether you have limited painting and drawing experience or if you are an experienced painter wanting to explore a different art medium.

Dorothy Shelton is a part-time artist and teacher. Dorothy has exhibited at the Gibson Centre in Alliston, the Mady Centre for the Arts in Barrie, Pace Medical and Stevenson Memorial Hospital in Alliston and currently on exhibit at the New Tecumseth Town Hall. She has also taught several in-house studio classes and offsite classes including the South Simcoe Palette Club and has appeared on Rogers television. Dorothy is a proud member of the South Simcoe Arts Council. Dorothy is truly a woman with heart, passion and talent that lives life in living colour.
