What’s New?

There are many new things to report at Personal Renaissance. First of all, I have just launched a new website dedicated to my art making that I hope you will visit at nancycrawfordartist.com. The site features several galleries including encaustic works, drawings, photographs and sculptures along with information about courses, programs and workshops.

Encaustic Studio ProcessSpeaking of which, there are several new course offerings coming up both locally and abroad that may be of interest to you or someone you know. First of all, I will be teaching an 8-day Encaustic Adventure in Spain in April of 2015. The encaustic class is open to anyone who is interested in learning about the exciting and dynamic world of working with wax and no prior experience is necessary. This will be my first time in Spain and I am super excited about the opportunity to combine several of my favorite things including traveling, creating, learning new things, meeting new people and eating amazing food!  I hope that you will join me! You can find out more information by clicking the Private Teaching button on this site or visiting me at nancycrawfordartist.com.

I will also be teaching three programs this summer including Getting In! A Post-Secondary Preparation Program in Visual Art, along with a couple of 2 and 3-day encaustic programs, Introduction to Encaustics and Encaustic Collage.  Again, please click on the Private Teaching button for more information and to register.

Encaustic WorkAlso, I will be giving a workshop down at the OPUS Framing and Art Supplies store on Granville Island on Saturday, March 29th 2014. The talk will take place between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. and is called Getting In! How to Create Award Winning Portfolios and Enter the Art School of Your Dreams. This workshop is free and open to the public. Simply register by calling the store at 604 736–7028. I will also be giving another OPUS presentation on Encaustic Painting Techniques later this year so please check back for information on dates and times.

Talking about travel and art, I am currently organizing a couple of new trips to Italy with internationally renowned photographer Oliviero Olivieri. Our updated itinerary and dates will be up by May 2014 so be sure to click on the Excursions link to the left to see if you can join one of our creative adventures.

Have an awesome day and happy creating!

Nancy Crawford
