Jennie is an award winning visual artist and author who has a passion to see others reconnect with their God-given capacity to create. During this workshop, you will explore a variety of mixed media processes within the exciting realm of encaustic. Encaustic paint is an ancient medium composed of beeswax, damar resin and pigments. Worked from a molten state, this versatile paint makes richly colored paintings and is a superb vehicle for mixed media exploration. You will be introduced to the following basics of working with encaustic: using temperature controlled electric griddles as palettes, heating and fusing layers of wax with heat guns, making homemade encaustic medium, preparing painting surfaces, brush application of paint, creating a variety of encaustic surfaces, mark-making with a variety of tools, image transfer, and incorporating collage elements into your design.
A $20 fee is required to cover the purchase of the materials for this class. This workshop is limited to 15 students. PURCHASE TICKET(S) ON EVENTBRITE.
Refreshments and coffee will be provided by Journey Arts Collective.
