This workshop takes a lively approach to exploring and mastering composition through layering and image manipulation using Lyn’s hugely successful AB3 System of Composition as a springboard for ideas in mixed media and encaustic work, particularly photocollage.

In the first phase, allows a painter to envision several “right answers” to each composition while creating journal-like collage studies. Participants will veil, conceal and reveal images with loosely applied acrylic paint, stamps, stencils and other collage elements.  The second phase bring these simple composition-mastery exercises into the photocollage process. This will be done through manipulating and arranging non-copyright photographs, veiling them with beeswax and encaustic medium layering, scraping, and applying translucent surface treatments to produce a fail-proof, viewer-engaging encaustic work.

Participants can expect to complete at least one or two pieces.

Prior work with encaustic materials is suggested but not mandatory.
