It will explore our interest in both two and three-dimensional forms with an emphasis on surface pattern, layering, color, composition, narrative, and drawing.

    Wax Week: Creating Expressive Landscapes
    June 13-17, 2020. Sat-Wed, 10-4 pm

    $950 for 5 days with most materials included
    Portland, Oregon
    All levels welcome

    When thinking of a special place, it's not just the visual landscape I remember, but also the colors, textures, scents, and stories attached to that memory. In this intensive 5-day workshop we'll paint landscapes that are special to us while exploring how to better capture the sense of the place, rather than just what it may look like.

    This workshop will focus on encaustic and mixed media painting but we'll also incorporate travel sketching, stream of consciousness writing, and some exciting collaborative exercises with your fellow artists to create expressive landscapes that represent much more than an idealized postcard version of a place.

    We'll use a variety of media to create your vision and focus on whatever makes sense for your individual paintings. We may choose to use pastels, ink, graphite, fine art crayons, or pigment sticks, so each session will be a little different. Working in a very small group makes this possible. I hope you'll join us!

    All of my Wax Week workshops are easily accessible for someone with little or no experience working with encaustic, but I will also offer rich, personalized instruction for those who have more experience.

    I keep my class sizes small, a maximum of 6 students, so everyone can learn at their own pace. This allows me to help introduce beginners to this new medium and still challenge more experienced artists with advanced tips and techniques.

    Most supplies will be provided including encaustic medium, encaustic paint, brushes, paper, boards, and basic encaustic tools.

    Asemic writing is wordless open semantic form of writing without the smallest unit of meaning. We prefer to view asemic writing as an expression of a personal inner language, one perhaps even the maker cannot translate cognitively. In this workshop, we will experiment with various approaches to asemic writing both large and small, and address ways to incorporate the writing into our work.

    We will focus on the discovery and development of our inner language or “alphabet” through body movement and free guesture, explore poetic and other forms of asemic writing. Ultimately we will take our alphabet, break it apart, and explore different approaches of expressing the writing in encaustic form via monotypes and painting abstractions using various tools paired with techniques developed by Amanda and Becky.

    Join me for an exciting one-day workshop combining your photographs as collage with Encaustic painting. Collage is one of my favorite layers that I can add to my paintings! This process involves printing photographs on light-weight tissue paper and embedding the image with encaustic medium and paints. Image transfers will also be explored. Beautiful, translucent layers are created by adding oil pigment sticks above or below for color and depth. Editing your photographs to print large with software and apps will also be covered.  You will be contacted ahead of the workshop to submit your photographs to be printed.  All levels welcome.

    Join me for my 24th year teaching unique encaustic workshops in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Chicago, and at other locations. I have a new line- up of intriguing classes that will inspire you and help you grow your art in ways you can barely imagine.

    I was awarded the IEA La Vendeene for unique advances in teaching and the development of the Roland HOTbox--the best tool ever for encaustic. JOIN ME IN A WORKSHOP AND SEE WHY ARTISTS--new or the most experienced--return again and again to work with me.
