This  encaustic workshop expands on the use of the encaustic medium for participants. Pressman will guide students in both basic and advanced techniques for creating works that are rich in layers and transparency.  Image transfers, mark making, pigment sticks, pastels and graphite are just some of the tools of the trade covered.  Along with technique, experimentation is encouraged and combined with attention to art fundamentals including concept and content. The emphasis will be on learning techniques and developing a personal language and vision.  Activities will include exercises, working in a series and individual support. Power points, discussions of contemporary art, professional and career support are all offered. Lisa will use guided exercises to lead students through an intuitive creative process, developing a new body of work that is richly layered in content and concept. The collective growth Lisa fosters in her workshops makes this a perfect environment for students looking to get feedback and problem-solve in a group dynamic. FOR FULL DETAILS AND REGISTRATION:
