Pyrography | March 22
Haven’t you always wanted to learn the ancient art of wood burning? Well, now is your chance to join artist Kylie Millar as she teaches you the art of Pyrography. Local artist, Kylie Millar specializes in pyrography and encaustic artworks, primarily working with wood, beeswax, resin, and acrylic paint to create mixed media pieces.
Encaustic Wax Painting | March 29
Here’s your chance to learn encaustic wax painting from artist Kylie Millar. Kylie will demonstrate various ways for you to create a mixed media piece and experiment with different lines, textures, shading, collage with wax, image incorporation, and layering with other media to create your very own masterpiece to take home at the end of the class.
Both the Encaustic Wax Painting and Pyrography classes can be taken independently to learn each artistic technique, or together for a chance to combine the two techniques and build upon your work.
Dreams and Wishes | April 12
In the Dreams and Wishes workshop you’ll work with an instructor to create your own vision board! Start visually sorting your ideas, thoughts, dreams, and wishes with a vision board that allows you be creative while also focusing on what you want for yourself. Using collage, you’ll cut, arrange, glue, laugh, and unwind as you let your creativity run wild with no boundaries. There’s no rules and no artistic experience is needed when you’re creating an inspiring vision board.
