Focus: Developing a Body of Work

Live online class
September 27, 2022 - January 10, 2023

In this class we will give you the tools, prompts and feedback to bring your work to the next level. This seminar will consist of six 2 hour online meetings spanning 5 months. As the course moves along you have more and more time in between sessions to work in the studio with occasional check-ins with the group. This is for artists who have accomplished a certain level of mastery over their mediums and want to push their work forward and develop a cohesive body of work. This is a small group course for the artist who desires a supportive environment and community to develop critical thinking as well as building the skills to discuss, execute, and present their work.

Art, Artifacts and Altars: Day of the Dead in San Miguel – International

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

In person workshop
October 29-November 2, 2022

This 5-day workshop will explore memory, personal mementos, and offerings through art-making. We will learn about Day of the Dead traditions in regards to these concepts and respond to them in our own work. Also called All Souls Day, it is thought of as the day when the veil between life and death is the thinnest and the best time for the departed to slip back to the living for a visit. It is a celebratory and happy day.We will immerse ourselves in the colorful architecture, cobblestone streets, vibrant culture, and culinary delights. In the decorated streets, altars, and cemeteries, we will explore all that this tradition has to offer. Incorporated into this focus is the concept of time, of real or imagined histories, and of faded or foggy memories.

Demos will include fusing, layering, incising, transfers, scraping and collage. Students will be encouraged to develop their own voice whether they tend toward representational or abstract work. This class is designed for those with some encaustic experience and want to expand their techniques and explore their ideas more fully.
