The Encaustic Minimalist Workshop featuring Daniella Woolf will provide the encaustic artist with ideas on how to get started doing a lot more Encaustic Art with considerably less. Less can mean using fewer materials, but can also mean creating a 'container' of limited items to explore in many different ways. Mastering the Pen tool, for example comes from practice, and limiting yourself to only using a pen tool for a body of work will result in new ways of thinking and often very surprising and appealing results. The course is a wonderful workshop in not only learning new techniques, but in developing a methodology towards producing a finished series and finding skill & mastery along the way.
The Encaustic Minimalist is a natural progression for me, after years of teaching in many corners of the world. The need to bring lots of equipment or arrange to have it shipped to a workshop has been the catalyst for this evolution.
Over time I've developed the practice of “having a container.” This refers to putting parameters on my work, either by material or color. It’s similar to having a very specific assignment in school. I found that in putting some restraints on my options, the results calm my anxiety about the "blank page" and enhance my creative process. Now I’m taking the next step with the equipment I choose to work with. Here I pass that along to you. Less things to work with = being more efficient in the studio. That’s what I always want, more time in the studio. Don’t you?
When I met Andrew Galli in 2009, I had been wanting to make an instructional DVD, but didn’t have a videographer. When I saw the quality of his work, after the SDA Demos, I knew he was The One! What Andrew gets visually is better than any seat in a workshop. It is beautifully clear, in focus, and you can play it over and over again.
Since all of us learn differently, this new eBook format can address everyone’s desired way of learning. This workshop offers video, still-photo slide shows, and text with step-outs. This is almost as good as being there and having individual attention. For that matter, you can email me anytime, and I will be delighted to answer your questions. We encourage you to participate by being interactive. Post photos of your work, and get involved in comments and discussion.
I hope you will enjoy doing more with less!
