Photos from Buried Treasure workshop

Thanks to BLOOM! owner Sandy Mier and to the delightful students who took this all day workshop last Saturday in beautiful Yachats, on the Oregon coast. I hadn't been to Yachats in years, but I will surely go back. The town is friendly and filled with art and good food. Thanks to Anna who helped so much with the workshop and the book signing on Sunday and to Lynne who put us up in royal style while we were there.

On Saturday the students learned the basics of encaustics: laying down medium and paint, fusing, and adding mixed media. They worked on 2-D pieces in the morning and in the afternoon created assemblages made from old books. Each student got a Frozen Charlotte doll to include in the assemblage.

Sunday we had a show of my work and a show of the work students made in the workshop. I signed books and got to visit with many of the friendly people of Yachats.

I am looking forward to another yummy Yachats weekend next summer!

Sandy, Alison, and Anna

what gorgeous and inspiring projects-wow!! You're obviously a really great teacher Serena. I've never worked with encaustics but perhaps one day I'll try it.
Thank you for sharing my art on your blog too :)
