Ellen Koment: Summer Workshops

More About Encaustic: Going a Little Larger July 12-15, 2013 The workshop will be an introduction, if you haven't done encaustic before, or you need a refresher on basic techniques, For more advanced encaustic painters, it will be an opportunity to enhance your work with a variety of new techniques. Individual instruction and criticism will help you move your encaustic painting to a new level. Beyond Beginning: Going Large August 12-16, 2013 Five Days: This is my most advanced workshop, and a unique opportunity for artists who are already working in encaustic to experience the joy of seeing there work on a larger scale, or to attempt any other expansion of their vision which they might like to pursue. We will address the special design and technical considerations involved in working on a larger scale, from sketch to finishing. Participants may work up to 36" x 36" on their own panels, but may choose to stay in the 24"x 24" range. For more details:
