Painting with Encaustic Medium/ Kit Fitzpatrick - July 21-26
Waxing Poetic: Painting with Encaustic Medium by acclaimed Gulf Coast artist Kat Fitzpatrick
This is a workshop for the curious, the lover of color and beeswax, the artist and the beginner. Through the ancient medium of encaustic we will create small, portable works of art based on our Snowbird experience or whatever you can imagine. I will teach you collage, fusing, carving, excising, drawing into, the use of hand made stencils and transfers using your images or mine. Whether you stay a day or a week, there will be an encaustic art studio at your fingertips. I will provide all necessary materials and tools. All you need to bring is a willing and open mind and small black and white high contrast photocopies (if you want).
Join Gulf Coast artist Kat Fitzpatrick, M.A.Ed. in exploring the ancient(1800 year old) medium of encaustic. Beeswax melted with damar crystals and colorful pigment produces an ideal art medium that can be painted, carved or layered, creating collage with photo transfers, cool papers, personal artifacts. Complete beginners as well as experienced artists are gently guided to find ways to create encaustic images of deep beauty and mystery. Come with a playful attitude and some small high contrast black and white photocopies...maybe you as a child, your grandchild, a favorite tree or pet? Join us for a day or a week. #SMLArt...
