Calling all creative entrepreneurs!  Maybe you are looking to work full time as an artist, open a studio, or begin teaching workshops.  Perhaps you want to begin showing your work publicly, engage with new audiences, or even meet other creatives.  Or maybe, you have no idea what direction you want to head in, but you are beginning to feel a tug pulling you 'somewhere'.  Whatever path you are on, this tier is for you. 

Being an artist is about so much more than making art.  Its about telling your story, finding your voice as a creative entrepreneur, and connecting to an amazing network of people and communities.  I made the move from working in the non-profit sector to being a full time artist and have never looked back........and I have learned a lot along the way!  You can expect:
  • Everything from The Hummingbird and Honeybee tier
  • Guidance for Building Your Creative Practice
  • Finding Your Niche and Telling Your Unique Story
  • Setting Goals, How to Make Them Happen, and Knowing When to Change Them

About Edge of Grey - Kim Kool

Welcome! My name is Kim and I am an encaustic artist with a full time teaching studio in Caledon, Ontario.  Many people come into my studio saying that 'they don't have a creative bone in their body'.  That's simply not true.  We are all creative, but we need the space and resources to nurture our creative practice.  My life changed the first time I dipped a paintbrush into a pot of beeswax and I love sharing this experience with others.  Besides painting, I am passionate about community building with a focus on inclusion, accessibility, and capacity building. 

Join my Patreon to learn about encaustic painting, grow your creative practice, build your community, and develop your unique artistic voice.   Visit my website, Edge of Grey to stay up to date with my blog, classes and workshops, and studio happenings.
