Encaustic (hot wax) painting is an ancient medium, first used by the Greeks, that has gained popularity with contemporary artists. A permanent and non-toxic medium encaustic often results in exquisite, luminous painting effects. Daily demonstrations are followed by hands-on studio practice. Learn about suitable grounds supports, encaustic materials, combining encaustic and oil sticks, tools for surface incising, and stencils. This intensive course is designed for all levels of beginning, intermediate, and advanced painters, as well as those familiar with encaustic. The returning encaustic student will be guided to develop and expand upon a personal style and theme, resulting in an integrated body of work. Tuition covers all encaustic and oil stick materials and supports. Early enrollment is recommended, as space is limited. Member benefits or promotional savings are not applicable.

Curating an exhibit at the Art Center Sarasota:

When I first envisioned curating this exhibition on Latin American women artists, I knew I wanted to create an exhibition to give free rein in a rich, multimedia platform where any person from any background could come and personally experience the incredible diversity, strength and talents of Venezuelan people from around the world.
Opening March 19th.
