MARCH 28th & 29th, 2015
ENCAUSTIC WATERCOLOR WORKSHOP
Saturday and Sunday 1 pm to 5 pm
OPEN STUDIO: Come and play in FAVA’s fully loaded encaustic studio, where beginner students and artists play side by side creating Encaustic paintings, through the guidance of Linda Lenart McNulty. Bring in an encaustic project you’re working on, or take part in the ideas presented. 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.
ENCAUSTIC WATERCOLOR: For March’s Workshop, we will experiment with rich watercolor pigments on watercolor paper, play with saturating them in warm encaustic wax, and then embed them, in whole or in part, into our encaustic paintings. As our watercolor paper hits the warm wax on the griddle, it undergoes a transformation: the pigment becomes even richer, even more subdued, and begins to diffuse, from the paper, into the wax. We can get imagery and color that we would never have created any other way. Experimenting with this technique will take you outside your art box, and into new directions with your work. You won’t be disappointed. Don’t miss the fun! There promises to be something for everyone in this colorful, stimulating workshop.
Register early! Seating is limited to 8 students, taken in order of registration (also it’s just nice to know if the workshop is going to run- students tend to all sign up at the last minute, leaving me wondering!). Here is the registration link. Registration just saves your seat. It’s a good idea. You can work out payment later with James:
