WOW! The fall got away from me. It’s been a really busy September, October and November, with many classes and exhibits. December’s been a great month so far, with even more classes and notifications of being accepted into some wonderful shows! More about those in later posts! 😀
So last Saturday, I taught at the Plymouth Art Center for the first time! It was a fantastic class, one that I had never taught before for a group – Encaustic Collage.
I love encaustic collage! It takes collages and adds so much versatility and so many more possibilities for layering. I had stations set up – one for the colored encaustics…
…one for collage materials…
…and one for the initial encaustic process – taking encaustic medium “beads” and melting them on to the collage with a crafting iron.
The class-goers were fantastic, and made amazing collages! I am always inspired when I teach, because I always know I’ll learn something as well. But in this class, the inspiration was over and above what I expected! Check out these gorgeous collages!
When I teach, I take my supplies with me in big bins. (I always include all supplies when I teach.) I had created two encaustic collages as samples:
But since the bin was still not put away, I thought I’d do some ATCs (artist trading cards) for our upcoming live trade in Milwaukee! I spent wonderful hours making these little guys, and I can’t wait to trade them in January!
Incidentally, if you’re interested in taking the Encaustic Collage class at Plymouth Art Center, I’ll be teaching this class again on March 25, 2017! You can see the classes here sign up here! 😀 Thanks so much to Flossie McKeown and the Plymouth Art Center for having me teach!
