Mixing Media: Pigment Sticks, Watercolor, Inks, and more

Saturday, January 25, 2020. 10 am - 4 pm, $225 (a few spots left)
Location: Portland, Oregon
All levels welcome

A fellow artist once told me that any mark is better than no mark, and that advice has served me well. You can use mark making techniques to avoid that dreaded blank canvas as you begin new work or to add gestural marks at any point in your creative process to add more spontaneity and life to your work.

In this workshop we'll combine several types of media both above and below the wax including watercolor, pigment/oil sticks, custom stamps and inks using both traditional and non-traditional tools. This is how I create my own encaustic paintings, so if you enjoy my work you'll love learning how to do it yourself. Come with an open mind and ready to make experimental work in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.

All supplies will be provided and most students will leave class with at least 2 finished projects.
