Icarus Art on YouTube

Our YouTube Channel is now operational. We have uploaded some basic clips that introduce the Icarus Technique. All videos from Ester's CPSA workshop "Wax and Heat, a Match Made in Heaven" will be gradually uploaded in the next several months. Artists who couldn't attend the workshop will have the opportunity to view them. Icarus Art's YouTube Channel can also be accessed  from our new "Video" tab on the top right of the Icarus Art Website or from Ester's blog.

Icarus Board Demonstrations


Sherri Van Schaick wrote to us on October 29: "Desiree Mansell and I gave our demo to our art club this morning, we didn't expect so many people to stay after the meeting to watch... Many members said it was the best demo ever.  We had so much fun.  I did the technical stuff and showed basic cool to warm to cool techniques.  Desiree wowed them with the speckles on rocks and stars in the sky and did a monotype allowing anyone who wanted to come up and apply different colors to the piece..."

Thank you Sherri and Desiree!
