Summer 2010 Workshops!

I’m teaching two workshops this summer at the Bemis School of Art in Colorado Springs (part of the venerable Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and a truly lovely space in which to teach and take a class).

One is an all around intro class (perfect for all levels really) and the second is an intermediate class, in which those with encaustic painting experience will be encouraged to push beyond their previous experience.

Dates and Descriptions:

Encaustic Painting
Learn the ancient art of painting with Encaustic (Beeswax) medium. Suited for beginners through experienced artists, the workshop will cover all the basics of painting with Encaustic, including creating your own encaustic paint, painting and moving the wax around with heat and tools, layering collage elements, drawing into encaustic, metal leafing, photocopy transfers and more! Each participant will be provided with four birch plywood panels and all encaustic materials and tools. There will be a
$25 materials fee payable to the instructor on the first day of class. Ages 16-Adult

Intermediate Encaustic Painting
Do you have some experience with Encaustic Painting and want to take your work to the next level? This two-day workshop will review the basics of working with molten beeswax and pigments while exploring advanced techniques in more depth.
