intro to encaustic workshop-3/7

feel like doing something different this saturday? why don't you come try encaustic painting at silver- mine arts center from 10:00-3:00 and get those creative juices flowing. this is a great opportunity to see if this ancient painting medium that is growing in popularity is right for you. or if you have already taken the intro workshop and would like to just have studio time that's fine too. the school at silvermine can be reached at 203-966-6668.

in its most basic form collage is the technique in which different, unrelated bits and pieces of paper, fabric, found objects, etc. are glued together to create a new, complete picture. i will be teaching an encaustic collage workshop at silvermine arts center on saturday, february 21 from 10:00-3:00. combining encaustic with collage opens up all kinds of new possibilities because we are using the clear medium as glue. since this process involves layering, using lightweight papers (such as colored tissue papers) that  will become transparent in the medium,  depth and other effects are created that are not easily achieved when just using glue. below is a sample of mine that combines collage with transfers. if interested in this one day workshop please contact silvermine arts center.
