What is Studioworks Creative Academy?



Hello my creative friends!

Join me online in this mixed media workshop where we will be creating two elaborate projects - a whimsical portrait and a dreamy landscape! Don’t fret if you’ve never painted a face before – I have some great tricks to share with you! Through a combination of collage, image transfer and painting, a lovely and unique portrait will emerge!

A muse, goddess, fairy or maybe even a self portrait – you decide!  More info below...

In our dreamy landscape project, we will be combining images from vintage postcards and other ephemera to create dreamlike, surreal and ethereal landscapes that beckon the soul to wander and explore. 

If you have never painted on plaster, you are in for a treat! This luminous material provides an amazing backdrop for your composition, giving a wonderful texture and making the piece almost glow from within. Combined with the dreamy effect of encaustic wax layers this combo makes for a stunning finished piece of work! You will fall in love with this process!

Once these compositions are complete, we will be incorporating encaustic wax layers and techniques to truly add another dimension of depth and beauty to these works!

I will be guiding you through several techniques such as collage, painting over collage and image transfers, adding stamps and vintage papers, paint application (both acrylic and oil), creating layers with wax, fusing and much more! Over 5 hours of video, plus tons of info, resources and access to my curated image gallery.

Take your time with the videos - you have lifetime access - so enjoy every minute and set your own pace. Connect with me and other student on our private Facebook page and have access to my favorite images resources and links to essential supplies. 

Honor your creativity, explore some new techniques and come with me on a creative, mixed media adventure!
