“Creative Minds: Art Exploration Workshop” will be a once a month art based workshop for young adults ages 10-14. Young artists will learn about styles, techniques and history of the chosen art based theme (each month will have a different theme) of the workshop. They will then create art pieces that correspond with the workshop theme.
Local artisan, Abigail Houff, leads you through the creation of delicate jewelry with semi-precious stones. Students will have the chance to exhibit their personality through a piece of handcrafted jewelry.
The two-day workshop will cover a brief history of this ancient medium, the basic equipment needed, how to set up your work space, make your own medium, mix your own colors, & give you a chance to explore how encaustics can embrace the other mediums & materials that inform your creative process.
An island favorite, Dawn Wilkins’ work takes its inspiration from the beaches, reefs, and gardens around the Keys. She creates her elegant pieces by printing directly from nature, pulling prints from leaves, coral and other natural objects. Wilkins teaches students to record their world as naturalists, but with an artist’s eye and a touch of a whimsy.
Materials are included for this workshop.

Wax on, wax off. Get inspired in this monthly, three-hour studio session created for those who want to further explore their encaustic process and creation among the camaraderie & support of other artists. Participants will be offered tips & a “new” technique at the beginning of the session & will then work independently on their own projects. Basic encaustic tools & materials will be provided. Some experience required.
This workshop is very experimental. If you are a collage artist or love encaustics or a little of both or are completely new to this game of encaustic and collage – come on out and have some fun! This class is all about trying some new techniques, discovering a new medium and just meeting others that have the same zest for creativity! We will be working with paper and panels, encaustic medium, paints and heat guns. We will carve, dip and layer paint while working with a variety of papers, fabrics and collage items.
