SPRUILL: Nov 12 – Encaustic Texture Class a Success!

Spruill Center for the Arts encaustic wax workshops and classes.–Dunwoody, GA

 

October 17 Class “Encaustic Fluctuations in Texture and Embedding” a Success!

spruill2015-encaustic-textures002
Our new Encaustic Texture class in October at Spruill Center for the Arts was great! We focused on building texture with wax and embedding components into pieces during this one day workshop. It was so much fun, and I’m very proud of the student work created that day. I taught the accretion technique and the outcome was outstanding!

We will DEFINITELY be teaching this class again at Spruill Center for the Arts. Check our workshops site often for the next texture class and follow me on Facebook at Kim McGill Stuart Encaustic Artist for updates.

Thanks to our students for supporting the encaustic wax workshop program at Spruill. You support enables us to offer more classes and make more great art!

 

 

SPRUILL: Dec. 9 – Encaustic Color Explorations Workshop

Encaustic Color Explorations with Kim McGill Stuart

Wednesday, Dec 9, 2015

10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Spruill Center for the Arts

Dunwoody, GA

 

Live in COLOR, like Robin Williams in “What Dreams May Come” during this one day color workshop. Kim will guide students through the principles of color theory and the making of a color study. Next, students will gain understanding of color mixing and how color is used to create visual effects in your work. Finally, develop your very own personal encaustic color palette that is unique to you and your work.

Students will mix oil pigments in molten wax and compose a palette that helps deliver the artistic message of each piece. The translucent nature of the wax with the boldness of the oil pastels offers a plethora of color fun. Further exploration of analogous, complementary and monochromatic colors will demonstrate how color can bring your work to life!
