Waxing Poetic
Date: Sunday, Oct 16 - Friday, Oct 21, 2022
Subject: Painting, Mixed Media
Instructor: Kat Fitzpatrick
Share:

Start each day with a short poem and explore connections between the written word and encaustic painting. This medium has been found in burial portraits in Egypt and in the 20th-century work of Jasper Johns, each with its own beauty. The smell of warm beeswax and the brilliance of pigments will fill your senses as we explore possibilities for collage, textural surface building, making and using stencils, photo-transfer methods, drawing, and other surprises. All levels welcome. Note: Additional materials fee is estimated at $130.

Tuition: $620.00
