Practical Reset: Pushing your Practice

Artists are often taught to think about painting and drawing in ways that reinforce conventional practices and classifications. In this workshop, students will play in the gap between what is familiar and modes of working that are beyond their place of comfort, adjusting to unconventional ways of using tools, materials, and processes. Participants will be encouraged to rethink their studio practice and develop individual visual vocabularies that speak to their inner life as well as their personal history, cultural heritage, and ethnic lineage. This is a conceptually-driven workshop that will not focus on specific skills or techniques. Intermediate level: for people who have an established artistic practice in any medium.

Making your Mark: Encaustic Painting and Photo Collage

This encaustic workshop will bring together several basic techniques to create beautiful, layered paintings rich with texture and translucency. We’ll explore color mixing, scraping, and developing imagery with a focus on using photographs as collage. This process involves printing photographs on lightweight tissue paper and embedding the images in the encaustic medium.  We’ll also explore image transfers. Layers can be created by using oil sticks to add pigment above or below the photographs for color and depth. The workshop will also include a brief history of encaustic painting and information about supplies, tools, safety, and preparation of substrates. Lots of one-on-one studio time will help you create and develop a body of work, gain confidence, and expand your voice with encaustic. All levels. 

Studio artist; teaching: Minneapolis College of Art and Design Continuing Studies Program, Haystack (ME), Zijdelings Atelier (Netherlands), Ampersand Ambassador Teaching Artist, R&F CORE Artist; two Minnesota State Arts Board Artist’s Initiative grants, Hinge Arts Residency (MN); exhibitions: Gallery One (Minneapolis), Kolman & Pryor Gallery (Minneapolis), Truro Arts Center (MA), Reedy Gallery (MN).
