Workshops/Playshops and weekly classes  for the first half of 2018

 These workshops are fun and intensive. They are packed with all the information you need to set down the foundations for creating your own works in cold wax, oil paint or dry pigments.

 I am always tweaking my classes so if you have already done one of my workshops you can be sure the next one will be different.
  ‘Awaken Your Creativity’ over two full days and engage with your personal creative expression in a two 
or three-day ‘playshop’. Have fun, get messy, find your creative voice and develop your own personal symbols.
There will be plenty of demonstrations, experiments, practical 
hands-on from both you and me.
We will cover the basic information you need to get started on day one with an additional studio day to explore the wonders of cold wax mixed media and allow you time to experiment further in on the second day.  All skill levels welcome.

Merridy Hope King reviewed Cheryl Joy Mixed Media Art — 5 star ·

Amica Whincop Art· 

Holy shiznicks, I've just been christened into the world of encaustic by Cheryl McGannon Cheryl Joy Mixed Media Art in one of her 2 day workshops. She is a master of the medium and had me at the words "blow torch and melted beeswax"!!! I've a long way to go to experiment with this technique and how to incorporate into my work, but am so grateful to have been introduced to it. Cheryl teaches workshops at her oasis of a studio in Doonan and is a highly sought after QLD artist. She is a flamin legend!!! Book yourself in!
