Lisa Pressman - Advanced Encaustic: Layers, Richness and Personal Vision
June 18—23, 2017
Level: Advanced - Master's
Tuition: $725 | Lab Fee: $95
This 5-day advanced, intensive encaustic workshop, will take experienced students to the next level in technique and expression. A major goal for Lisa for this workshop is to give individual direction and to help students develop personal vision with an emphasis on revisiting art fundamentals. Pressman will use guided exercises to lead students through an intuitive creative process, developing a new body of work that is richly layered in content and concept. Exercises are grounded in abstraction; attention will be paid to the use of personal symbols and markings that could develop into a deeper visual dialogue.
The collective growth Lisa fosters in her workshops makes this a perfect environment for students looking to get feedback and problem-solve in a group dynamic. Color application, fusing, mark making, pigments stick, pastels, graphite, working large are techniques that will be covered. Encaustic equipment, history and safety will be revisited. Activities will include exercises, informal group discussion, and individual support. Prerequisite: at least one teacher-led encaustic workshop and a year of working with encaustic materials.
