This two-day workshop is for intermediate to advanced artists working in encaustic. The focus is on exploration, intuition and pushing out of your comfort zone. The first day will consist of quick exercises and prompts that encourage mark making to identify individual interests and personal language. We will be experimenting with charcoal, graphite, ink and pigment sticks, and other materials on a variety of papers developing source materials for the next day. Day two, we  will transfer, embed, cover over and dip the drawings in wax creating a visual reference of personal narrative. This class provides an insightful experience in personal creative development. Be prepared to be inspired
