What you'll do

During your stay, I will share with you my passion for the beautiful area where my art studio is and introduce you to the basic techniques of encaustic painting, sharing its spontaneous virtues of working with texture and colours and its versatility with building up layers. After the short walk by the scenic lakeshores to get the creative juices flow, we will set up in my artist studio where I will do a short demonstration of the encaustic process and show you how I create a painting from start to finish. Under my guidance, you will then have the opportunity to experience this unique way of painting and quickly and easily learn to create a beautiful artwork and embellish it using a wide range of techniques.
Other things to note
No painting experience necessary ! The whole experience is about discovering hidden lakeshores, playing with molten beeswax, have fun and be amazed by what you can do with versatile medium !

After only 3 hours I left Isabelle's studio with 3 very unique pieces of artwork, that I created myself! Isabelle has a wonderful way of sharing her skills and knowledge and passion for her art. Her studio is warm, bright and well laid out. And the yummy flapjacks and tea helped keep the energy levels up while we were being creative. Thank you Isabelle for an amazing afternoon!
