What you'll do

To begin, a few safety tips will be explained about working with hot wax and hot tools. Then we will paint and draw. If you can doodle you can do this! We will warm up with some ice-breaker drawing games and then move into instruction on layering wax. During the three hour workshop I will demonstrate a few techniques and provide guidance as you try them out. Take home original artwork made by you! Treat yourself to an overnight stay or longer upstairs at our Airbnb - Artists Attic@Boston Bed & Studio! https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/16576500 (copy and paste into your browser) My studio is fully equipped with a Roland Hotbox, three 16"x16" R&F Handmade Paint Palettes, painting and drawing tools and supplies. The studio is also vented with two vent-a-fumes. Some of the tools include heat guns, torches, wax writers, tools for scraping back wax and tools for incising lines into wax. Also available are brushes, dip pens, India ink, pigmented beeswax and medium. Students will be provided with everything needed for encaustic painting and drawing.

Martha

The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls. -Picasso I have been an artist and educator for over 20 years and a superhost with Airbnb for over a year. I formally studied at the Museum School in Boston and at the NY Studio School. Five years ago I began working in encaustic, hot pigmented beeswax, as a medium to incorporate drawing and painting. The technique I developed, which I will share with you, combines intuition and mindfulness. Intuition is innate and mindfulness is a practice. You will access both during this workshop.
