10:00 to 4:00 each day!
The cost is $625.00 which includes many supplies (supply and registration info below)
Day One (1pm to 4pm): We will use found materials to construct various unique mark making tools/brushes. Each student will be asked to bring unique found materials to use to make their tools during this session. We will also provide various materials for use as well.
Day Two (10am to 4pm): We will explore the connections between materials (paper, ink, tools/brushes) and the artist (making centered, fluid marks – being centered and open). We will explore ENSO (a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create) and other mark making processes/ideas/concepts.
Day Three (10am to 4pm): We will create finished work using the pieces created the previous day, or using work which is created that day (assuming there is sufficient time to dry). Elizabeth will demonstrate how to adhere paper to cradled panel as well as how to use encaustic medium to preserve and display your finished work.
There will be plenty of instruction as well as time to create.
Provided traditional Asian Calligraphy tools:
With these tools we will paint on paper to create 13 X 55 inch scrolls and smaller works on paper using Asian Black ink (Sumi-E ink) and Walnut ink.
We will also learn various collage applications using ink paintings and printed/Joss paper. These will be adhered to a panel.
Supplies to bring:
Connecting is to link or to be linked to; join; fasten. Our lives are made up in part by our connections. Without connections we would literally be alone, living a singular life – it would be akin to living in nothingness. Connections can be fleeting or painful to have or keep. They can also bring joy and happiness and contribute to a more fulfilled life. My intention with my art/paintings is to explore the most significant connections in my life, those that have influenced me and made the deepest impressions.
Cultural connections have had a significant impact on my life, my way of thinking, the way I choose to live and my ideas about myself. My experiences in Asia especially have influenced my ideas about myself, who I am and how I live my life.
In my current body of work, I am exploring the idea of cultural connection, how 2 cultures can co-exist, maintaining a distinct point of view, while at the same time coming together in a whole new way. A new voice that combines the traditional and the contemporary, in a way that honors and values both.
Elizabeth was born and raised in Northern California, and has always held a deep appreciation for and affinity with the sea and the natural beauty of the Northern California coastline. Her paintings reflect the deep bond she feels with nature and her love of the ocean. Organic shapes and forms are almost always present in Elizabeth’s work, whether she is working with encaustic medium or ink on paper.
In recent years Elizabeth has been working primarily with encaustic medium/mixed media (paper, ink, and fabric).
