Weekends in July

The Encaustic Pen

 Instructor: Larry Calkins

Sat & Sun, July 14 & 15

9 am-4 pm

Painting with an encaustic pen is a quiet meditation on process & discovery. It favors patience &       deliberateness. The most appealing aspect of this is the slow build-up of wax, stroke by stroke, layer upon layer, adding colors bit by bit and carefully mixing them directly on the panel. This method lends itself especially well to working on a small surface. For example, the encaustic painters of Greece, who developed this process, seldom made pictures larger than the average head.

The workshop is from 9 am to 4 pm in the Larson Gallery with a lunch break. Class size limited to 15. Materials list provided on registration.

The Summer Fun Workshops Series is packed full of non-stop creativity! Each weekend in July the gallery is excited about bringing you new mediums to express the artist within. Whether you’re a beginner eager to learn something new or a seasoned aficionado these workshops are sure to bring new experiences and ideas to the table. With instructors like YVC art teacher, Meghan Flynn, and former Larson Gallery Director, Carol Hassen, you’re bound to walk away with a treasure trove of information and inspiration. Register online at Hurry seating is limited!
