Save the Dates! Two Amazing Karma Art Events in November!

We are excited to announce our new partnership with North York Arts. Karma Creative Art Studio is co-presenting two inaugural events on November 6 and 15 and hope you can attend!

The Synergies Art Exhibition is from November 5 – 20, 2014. The media of the exhibiting artists, established and emerging, includes acrylic, encaustic, photography, sculpture and mixed media. The focus of the show is on the “synergy” that comes from artists working together.

Wax Poetic – text and detail in encaustic – mini-workshop with Maggie Doswell – Thursday May 10 – $37.50

May 10 – wax poetic – add text and fine details to encaustic
Let text and fine detail emerge in your encaustic work during this ½ day mini workshop that will focus on the techniques you need. Maggie will lead you through an afternoon of interesting demos with a variety of tools and approaches. You will have an opportunity to experiment with the techniques and  add practice pieces to your sketchbook.  While working with wax can often result in thick richly textured surfaces, spot color and fine detail can make your work more personal and unique.  Combined with text, this will add an interesting dimension to encaustic work.

Bring all your own pigments, waxes and interesting natural material papers. We will supply some paper samples and the equipment.

Thursday May 10 1 – 3:30

$37.50 + HST
