You are interested in trying encaustic painting for the first time and want to learn more about the medium. We will work together to build a solid foundational understanding of encaustic painting that will set you up for a lifetime of creative exploration.
You have some experience with encaustic painting but want to continue learning and exploring your own creative practice. We will work together to build upon your existing skills as well as introduce new encaustic painting techniques to bring your art to the next level.
Perhaps you are an encaustic artist looking to shake things up a little bit by working with someone new. Maybe you want to do some planning around setting some creative goals pertaining to your encaustic practice. Whatever the reason, encaustic mentoring can help!
Whether you are an absolute beginner, an established encaustic artist, or at any point in between, encaustic mentoring is a gentle process that will help guide you as you embark on or continue your journey with encaustic painting.
I will work with you on anything related to your encaustic practice. This may include encaustic techniques and processes (glazing, ink, pan pastels, oil sticks, masking off areas, etc), helping you work through creative barriers and blockages, or helping you to define and implement business goals related to your encaustic practice.
Mentoring will take place at The Hive Encaustic Studio. I will work with you on an ongoing basis as needed. You do not need to have previous encaustic experience. All supplies, wax, and equipment are included with the exception of substrates (boards).
I recognize that when working one on one with an artist, it is important that the fit is a good one. Prior to beginning our work together, we will chat about what it is you are hoping to learn. If my skill set is not well suited to meet your needs, I will do my best to refer you to another encaustic artist who's teachings are in line with your goals.
$40 per hour plus hst with a minimum of 2 hour sessions if you have not worked with me before.
1 hour sessions may be booked if you are a returning student.
You may follow up your mentoring session with Open Studio time if you wish at a rate of $20 per hour (no instruction)
Multi Day options will also be available for individuals who wish for an immersive experience or for those coming from out of town.
Encaustic mentoring is now available by appointment Monday-Sunday at The Hive Encaustic Studio.
