    March 26 – 27 10AM to 3 PM

    Cost $450.00 Materials and tax included

    Description: The first day we will make encaustic medium using refined white wax and Darmar resin. Once the medium is completed,  we will then focus on color formulating and the color sticks making process. Oil paints mixed with the encaustic medium (EM) is the binder for  the pigment particles to one another and creates uniform consistency and solidity in the paint. These colors will be tested and used in your  own paintings. 

    This is a rare opportunity to make and test your favorite colors while looking at both opaque and transparent colors and how they can be extended with the EM. You will learn and enjoy this easy process and leave with two-three pounds of your custom design color sticks.

    Day Two, we will talk about health and safety with encaustics, but focus on the encaustic monotype painting techniques, plate temperature management, papers absorbency and color sticks applications.

    We provide demonstrations followed by hands-on studio time. 

    This allows participants time to paint and explore the many possibilities of the monotype process using the color sticks designs in a safe comfortable work environment.

    Making Abstract Art

    Art is a 20th-century movement characterized by the reduction of natural appearances into simplified forms; for example, constructing art on the basis of geometric shapes or intuitive gestures. Also called Nonobjective Art, doesn’t depend on the appearance of the visual world as a starting point; the assumption is that art doesn’t have to be about anything other than formal elements: shape, color and expressed emotions. 

    Description: 

    This workshop is for artists who are motivated to learn more about creating expressive, simple yet bold abstract art. We will start with the basics, then some color exercises and talk about the composition, the weight of color and experimentation. Additionally, we will discuss, geometry, repetition and “What holds everything together”? 

    The second day is about constraint in art. We will look at Minimalism and the many variables we deal with, in creating a painting. How to simplify things? How do we take a concept and boil it down to its essence? 

    Lots of time for action-filled painting and personalized attention.
