Saturday July 20th Understanding Epoxy (full)

Detailed colour lesson

image1

One of my favourite things to teach because I loved learning it at Ontario College of Art. I accidentally ended up having to take an entire year of colour theory and have never looked back

Mixing coloured epoxy

image2

Knowing how to translate all the colours that are in your head onto the physical plane is very liberating, and essential! We will use this knowledge to make the happiest rainbow of colours with our epoxy

Epoxy has endless possibilities

image3

I have been experimenting and excelling in this medium for many years and I am so excited to share everything that I know.

All that we learn in this class can carry over to many other mediums

Metallic foils

image4

We will also learn all about the wonderful world metallic foils. Rummage through my vast supply of intensely bright and shiny foils which are brilliant (literally) as an entire background layer or as finely applied detail

Let's get free

image5

My goal as an artist is to always feel free to play and experiment. Everyone will have a different recipe for success. Included in mine are these ingredients: knowledge of materials, wide open space and the freedom from expectations and boundaries

A fun day

Sunday July 21st, Northern Lights (full) Second class Monday August 12th

Holographic foils!!!

image7

I use holographic foils to create the base for the sky paintings. The depth you achieve is like no other medium. It's the closest thing to deep space that you can come to in the human world

and the ever amazing Northern Lights

image8

Starting with the holographic foils, we'll add a sprinkle of stars, neon swirls of colour and a dusting of magic

Epoxy is our medium

Epoxy can be tinted to any depth of colour.  When it's all mixed together, you can stand back and watch the amazing transformation as it blends in its own cosmic way 

The sky is not the limit

You will learn so many amazing things about the medium of epoxy: how to tint it, what products to use and where to get them as well as new artistic ways to use it in combination with traditional mediums such as acrylics, raw pigments and alcohol inks

A place to be creative

Saturday September 21st Amazing Abstract Landscapes

It's all about colour

image12

We will start by choosing the main colour theme of your piece and mix acrylics for your 'underpainting'

Inspired by nature

image13

Landscapes are all about depth and texture

Let the technique do all the work

image14

By letting the spatula drag the colours across your board, you get very natural blending. It's addictively fun and effective

Add your favourite elements

image15

You might want some bits of flowers, or metallic foiled leaf detail, a small critter or...

Finish with a layer of coloured epoxy for real depth

image16

We'll finish by adding a layer of coloured epoxy which will enhance the depth of colour and add a beautiful lustre

Amazingly creative

image17

You'll be surprised how easy it is to create solid masterpiece

Epoxy is our medium

3-day Workshops available upon request

A workshop consisting of 3 half days

Epoxy resin Sarah Moffat Art flowers metallic foil holographic red poppies

The epoxy takes anywhere from 3 to 24 hours to cure or to be ready for foiling. So in order to achieve a special depth of colour and texture we would need about 3 separate half days add multiple layers of flowers, grasses and colour. 


First we do backgrounds

image23

This is a fun experimental stage that includes acrylic underpainting, setting the tone and layout of the painting. We then work with epoxy and foils along with other medium to create dynamic, natural textures as a base

Then we plant flowers and grow grass!

image24

This stage takes place over several days, as each layer cures we add metallic foils, more colour, more flowers and grass

Mid-week dates

image25

Mid-week dates are available upon request

any day of the week except Wednesday

You can also get your own group together, and then we can discuss possible dates

Weekend dates
