NEW IN JULY:
Encaustic Open Studio Workshop!
July 26 – 27, 2014
All Supplies Provided
This month we will again be playing in FAVA’s fully loaded encaustic studio, where beginner students and artists play side by side creating Encaustic paintings, with my guidance. Bring in something that inspires you, like an organic object, an image from a magazine, a bit of color, or an image captured on your phone. We can study your item and translate that inspiration into wax! There will be lots of time to expand your idea, play, and to inspire the others around you. Workshops are small and personal; we laugh a lot and there is lots of one-on-one instruction.
July’s demo will be on everything Reflective. In fact, that is the idea theme as well: Reflection. I will give demos using all kinds of Reflective Mixed Media: Mirrored Tiles, Mica Stone, Shattered Iridescent Mica, Mica Powder, “antiqued” Rhinestones and Pearls, lots of Metal Leaf, Metallic Transfer Foil, Metallic R&F Pigment Sticks, and Metallic Encaustic Paint. When this reflective mixed media accentuates your paintings’ smooth waxy surfaces and images from your reflections, you’ll see your ideas come together in a way that satisfies your inner artist!
Come Explore Encaustic Painting on the last weekend in July!
