Join visual artist Candace Law in the studio on Saturday, June 24 from 10 am to 4 pm to explore the number of ways we can incorporate marks in our encaustic paintings. Space is limited, so you won’t want to miss out.

One of my absolute favorite things to do on any piece I’m painting is to make marks of some kind. Artist Paul Klee once said “A line is a dot that went for a walk”. I’ve never met a line I didn’t like, and dots or scribbles are just as interesting, adding layers and greater depth to the surface of your artwork.

We’ll talk about some of the specific materials that pair well with wax. Ever tried incising or inlays? This is your chance to spend a day experimenting and opening up your imagination. To add to the fun, we’ll pull out a selection of pigment sticks to enhance our marks or create subtle glazes.

As always, there will be demonstrations and group discussion, as well as individual work time and one-on-one time with me will fill out the day.

The equipment, materials and most supplies for the workshop are provided. Feel free to bring any materials (found objects, papers or other small items) you might like to incorporate into your artwork. You’ll be working with small to medium-sized panels (up to 9” x 12”) so you can complete at least one piece by the end of the day.
