Join visual artist Candace Law on Friday and Saturday, May 20-21 from 10 am to 4 pm each day in a workshop you won’t want to miss! You’ll be hands-on, working with different ways to use photo images you’ve taken and creatively pair them with Encaustic. How fun is that! The cost is just $295, and all materials are included.

You will learn several processes that include:

  • transferring images onto a waxed surface
  • embedding images printed on thin papers
  • hand-coloring photos using pan pastels or pigment sticks
  • doing a wax pour
  • and other cool things

This will be an exploration of techniques many artists use to bring photographic images into their creative work, and it is going to be a lot of fun. So dig out your phone or camera, go through some old photo prints, and sign up early; there are a limited number of spots available. You will be covering a lot of ground to push and enhance your photo/wax/mixed media work, so some basic experience with encaustic will be helpful.

Demonstrations and group discussion, as well as individual work time and one-on-one time with the instructor will fill out each day. The discussion and review at the end of each day is a critical part of the learning process, so attendance is expected from 10 am to 4 pm. This workshop will be a great opportunity for you to add to your creative toolbox.

As always, the equipment and most materials are provided. You will be asked to email ahead of the workshop one image that will be printed and glued to a panel ahead of time for you to use on Friday; then bring with you 4 or 5 additional photos or images to use in class. More details will be provided in a separate email in advance of the workshop.
