(steps 1, 2 and 3 above for each piece)

 

Please email to confirm availability and to sign up.

This workshop will look at a variety of ways to make strong compositions utilizing a number of techniques such as monotype, collage, sgraffito, scraping back to reveal shapes and stenciling. We'll be using the sealing iron, encaustic paint, pigment sticks and collage on 12x12 plyboards. I am keeping the enrollment at 6 for now so as to spend some good time planning approaches for each piece in stages as it moves forward.
