"Black & White Workshop - Encaustic Monotypes"
July 17, 2019 10 am-4 pm
 

In this Intuitive monochromatic approach we will use ink, graphite, charcoal, carbon, oil pastels and encaustic sticks to create simple yet bold marks. The emphasis will be on working looser, but also focus on the use of line, form, shape, patterns, texture and edges within a composition. Mark-making expressions (gestural marks) help direct the artist to focus on process-oriented abstraction using patterns and emotions as a source of inspiration. Artists will create numerous 12 x 18 paintings as well scrolls. Finally, we will look and discuss composition and how this colorless painting approach, helps us create a totally unique and unplanned image that can communicate meaning and message.
