This 4 day  advanced  intensive encaustic workshop will take experienced students to the next level in technique and expression. Individual direction and development of a personal vision will be a goal of this class with an emphasis on revisiting art fundamentals.  Lisa 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.

Color concepts will be taught such: as temperature, translucency  and opacity and its function in layering.  Fusing, mark making, pigment sticks, pastels, graphite,  working large are techniques that will be covered.  Activities will include exercises, informal group discussion and individual support. Prerequisite: at least  one teacher led workshop and a year of working with the material.
