Option to purchase additional cradled panels at workshop for $10 each.


WHAT WILL STUDENTS PAINT?  WHATEVER THEY WANT.

▪ My artistic focus is on representational encaustic painting.  I work from photographs taken by myself or family and friends. I encourage each student to work with their own images and photos. I want students to have an emotional connection with the image they are painting, The essence of art.I encourage students to work with simple imagery. I would advise students against working with portraits when first learning encaustic.  Fine detail is difficult with encaustic due to the nature of the paint.

▪ Email me your photos two days before the workshop date so I can prep the images. Please add me to your email contact list so my email does not go to your spam mail.  Jessie@JessieFritsch.com. I will communicate through email primarily.

Students are not required to paint their own images. I will provide images for those students who would like to work from my personal images. My images will be available to use at the workshop.

▪ Everyone will learn and paint differently in this encaustic workshop. If students would rather  experiment and paint abstractly that is ok too. I am there to provide guidance and a safe work space.

▪ Music is part of my art making process and will be played during the workshop.  If you have a favorite musician or style, please let me know and I will add your music to the workshop playlist.

Parking: There is no parking on Michigan Ave. Students can park in the driveway. it can hold four cars. There is also parking in the back alley behind the house. The gravel alley is off of Dixon St. students will have to walk through the large grass backyard to get to my studio entrance. My art studio is in the upper apartment, and my entrance is in the back of the house. Please use outdoor stairs to get into the upstairs apartment. Do not use the front door or lower level back door.
