Arts4All: #BreakTheBarriersInitiative Program

Encaustic art is an ancient technique using heated wax to create colour, texture and depth.

It is an amazing medium that anyone can do. It enables a return to childlike play with colour and imagination; a moment out of time that is free of struggle and worry.

This class is two hours long with thirty minutes of class instruction and demonstration. The student is then set free to unleash their creativity, with guidance if and when requested. Each student leaves with one or more personal masterpieces, and a feeling of pride, self confidence and joy.

All Materials & Tools are included: irons, beeswax, crayons, paper, mats, cello sleeves

Location: Adjala-Torsorontio Municipal Centre, 7855 30th Sideroad, Alliston

Light snacks will be served.
Please bring a smock/apron or dress for getting messy and creative.

How do I register?

When registering for this program you have a choice of what to pay.
If you are able to pay full or half price simply choose those price points and register yourself or a child. If you would rather "Pay What you Can" simply choose that option and continue with the registration process. When you attend the class you will have the opportunity to put your contribution towards the class in our "Pay what you can Can".

What is "Pay What you can"?

These Arts4All Workshops are generously supported by grant funding through the Ontario Trillium Foundation and community donors. This grant allows us to offer professionally taught classes at no-cost, low-cost, and subsidized rates with the intent to remove the barriers that hinder our community from participating in the arts. "Pay What You Can" classes allow participants to register online and pay what they can on site (via cash or cheque) in our donation jar. All funds received for registration will go back into our #BreakTheBarriersInitiative helping us provide ongoing programming to our community.

If you have questions about financial or travel assistance for these programs through the SSAC please contact
