Shields: Encaustic Assemblage and Surface Design

In this workshop, we will have the opportunity to design our own shield. A symbolic representation of self. A physical object adorned with meaning to what empowers us to be our best, fullest, highest selves.  


Both project oriented, and technique driven, this class will help the student tap into their own unique interior world to create an artistic representation of what fuels, feeds, and frees them as a person and an artist.

Shield as protection, shield as identification, shield as adornment

Personal representation in 3D form

Shields: Encaustic Assemblage and Surface Design, will cover techniques in light assemblage construction, encaustic wax painting, and surface design.
