Who likes to play with fire? Pat Spainhour, assisted by blacksmith Paul Spainhour, will present a two day workshop experimenting with the charred surface and encaustic paint. Students will draw with firework sparklers, use hot metal to brand a wood panel, watch firecrackers become mark makers, and create texture with gunpowder. Encaustic paint will be introduced to the altered paper through encaustic monotypes techniques. Safety measures will be in place and the burning controlled. This is an unforgettable artistic experience.
