Amelia Kraemer guides participants through creating their own narrative based, mixed media painting as materials and imagery are used to create a story, fictional or real, about the central character. Participants are encouraged to bring their own ephemera that relate to their person or the story they want to create but Amelia will also have a supply of various ephemera, specialty papers, stamps, ink, etc for students to experiment with. Chalk paint will be used to add colour, block out areas, and add depth and then students will be lead through the use of claer geso to bridge to the final encaustic finish. The unique, warm glow of the wax finish lends mystery and history to everyone’s personal projects.
*Note: Participants must email two full length (head to toe) photographs of people they’d like to use in their painting at least ONE WEEK before the workshop begins, so that Amelia can remove the background for you.
