Encaustic Open Studio Workshop
Featuring: LINE, STROKE & SCUMBLE!
FEBRUARY 28th – MARCH 1st, 2015
OPEN STUDIO: Come and play in FAVA’s fully loaded encaustic studio, where beginner students and artists play side by side creating Encaustic paintings, with my guidance. Bring in an encaustic project you’re working on, or take part in the ideas I am presenting. Either way, you’ll have the support and encouragement you need, as well as all the encaustic supplies you could dream of! There will be lots of time to play, to laugh, and to inspire those around you! Workshops are small and personal; we laugh a lot and there is a lot of one-on-one instruction.
LINE, STROKE & SCUMBLE: For February’s Workshop, we will continue our exploration of expressive line, varied brushstroke and scumbled surfaces. We will layer our drawn line into the wax and build up imagery on the surface; we will contrast delicate & smooth, with bold & lively brushstrokes; and we will distress our surfaces with brushstroke, layering, scraping and mark making. We will continue to play with a variety of mediums which are all wax compatible: oil pastel, water soluble pastel pencil, chalk pastel, charcoal, graphite, colored pencil and ink. Beginners are welcome and each artist is encouraged to play within their own comfort zone & gifting! Come join the fun!
