"Encaustic Monotype: India ink Graphite and Carbon Workshop"
July 18-19, 2020

This workshop offers artists the opportunity to explore and discover new shapes and ideas while using a “Monochrome Approach.” Mark-making expressions (gestural marks) help direct the artist to focus on process-oriented abstraction using patterns and emotions as a source of inspiration to create a narrative. To begin, we explore the line, negative space and expression through a series of directed exercises using India ink, charcoal and graphite. We then look and discuss the power of color to convey and communicate meanings and content. This workshop will offer discussions/demos, studio painting time, as well as individual critique concerning your own personal direction in your art making.
Location: Santa Fe, New Mexico
Instructor: Jorge Luis Bernal
Cost: $395.00
