Lorraine Glessner - Mixed Media Encaustic: Pattern & Line
Level: Open - Intermediate, Advanced
Tuition: $675 | Lab Fee: $95
The repeated use of a shape, color or design element unifies composition, creates pattern, rhythm and movement as well as reinforces content. Lines lead the eye and communicate information through variation in width, direction, density, length and character. This workshop focuses on the creation of intricate patterns, expressive personal surfaces and complex, multi-layered pieces utilizing and in combination with encaustic painting techniques. With an emphasis on mixed media, methods and materials covered in this workshop include the use of organic and geometric form, realistic and abstract imagery, patterned collage, stencils, drawing with horse hair, branding (creating marks with heated metal and wood burning tools) as well as creating your own grids, laces and lace-like forms using free motion sewing machine embroidery on water soluble stabilizer. Considerations such as using pattern and repetition as content itself, to tell a story, support and/or strengthen the content message will also be discussed. Most encaustic supplies/equipment and a sewing machine will be included for class use.
Lorraine Glessner's love of surface, pattern, mark-making, image and landscape has led her to combine disparate materials and processes such as silk, wood, branding, rust, paper and more in her work. Lorraine is an Assistant Professor at Tyler School of Art, Temple Univeristy, a workshop instructor and an award-winning artist. She holds an MFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, a BS from Philadelphia University, and an AAS in Computer Graphics from Moore College of Art & Design. She has a diverse art background with skills that include painting, sculpture, graphic design, interior design, textile design, photography, digital imaging and much more. Among her most recent professional achievements is a Second Place award in Sculpture from Art of the State at the State Museum in Harrisburg, PA, a recently completed artist residency at Jentel Foundation and an acquisition by Kelsey-Seybold Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. Lorraine’s work has been exhibited locally and nationally in galleries, craft centers, schools, libraries, universities, and more. Like her work, Lorraine brings to her teaching a strong interdisciplinary approach, mixed with a balance of concept, process, history, experimentation, problem solving and discovery.
