2019 – Scholarship

Brown Webb Richardson Art Hawke's Bay Scholarship 2019

Mary Jessie Sullivan will be running the Brown Webb Richardson Scholarship Workshop for two selected artists during Exhibition week.

Mary will teach encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting. Beeswax and damar resin are heated with coloured pigments and then applied to a surface, usually prepared wood. Metal tools or brushes then manipulate the wax while it is hot or after it cools.

This workshop will take place at Mary's "Beach Road Studios" in Haumoana.

Check out examples of her work at www.maryjessiesullivan.co.nz.

Whatever your skill level, you will learn valuable techniques and broaden your horizons under her tutelage.
