What you'll do

Whether you use a smart phone or professional camera to take photos, this workshop is for you! As a long time professional photographer and artist, I will give you hands-on instruction on using an ancient painting process along with mixed media to enhance your photographs. We will spend the time creating one-of-a-kind beautiful works of art. Explore wax as an alternative means to create multiple layers of translucent imagery. You will also learn the best glue methods, texture adding tools, mixing colorful pigments, hand coloring, usable exotic papers and more. Workshops are held at her downtown studio/gallery for 1-3 participants and for larger groups at the Museum of Encaustic Art here in Santa Fe. Bring your own photographs or choose from an assortment of images on-hand. This joyful arts & crafts style workshop is guaranteed to bring out your creativity and enthusiasm. All materials and supplies are included. This is a terrific experience for adults or for a family (ages 12 and up). No painting or photography experience is needed!

Learn more about Angel

Angel

I am a mixed media artist here in Santa Fe New Mexico. I have a gallery down town just half a block from the historic plaza. Last summer I had a show of current artwork "Route 66: The Mother Road". Other solo exhibits have been on subjects such as "Adelita Women Soldiers", "The American Bison" and "Frida Kahlo". Recently, at Artisan Expo 2018, I taught 2 workshops that sold out. I have been an instructor at the Museum of Encaustic Art along with traveling to teach workshops in Colorado, Arizona and Idaho. For pleasure I hike with my labrador retriever and ride my horse western style.

What's included

Equipment
Light refreshments and all the art materials, birch wood panels, and photos are provided.

We all exhibit and sell our art here. For larger groups we will meet at the Encaustic Art Institute Classroom inside the Museum of Encaustic Art, which features artwork from over 100 wax artists.
