OR

Saturday, November 16th
10am-4pm (half hour lunch break)

This is an exciting workshop which will add new dimensions to your creative toolbox! The morning session will introduce you to the process of creating altered papers utilizing National Geographic Magazines and Citra Solv organic cleaner. After lunch, we will utilize those papers to create a collage utilizing Encaustic medium and pigmented wax as a binding medium. Basic intro to Encaustic techniques will be provided. Participants will take home a completed work of art and additional altered papers to use in future projects. Students may bring their own preferred materials (art papers, magazines, laser copies of photos) to use in their work. Hot wax and heating implements will be used, so please be aware of this.
