Wyomingarts was perusing the excellent new blog of the Cheyenne Artists Guild when we came across this notice for an upcoming workshop:

Jenny Paulk presents “Encaustic and Crayons” workshop Jan. 14-15 at the Cheyenne Artists Guild. Fee is $80 for Guild members and $100 for non-members.

This workshop can be for the beginner or advanced painter who is interested in learning the fun and different ways of painting a canvas using melted crayons, and a method called Encaustic painting, which is painting with wax. 

We will begin with discussion of Encaustic painting, its history, and the different techniques. To get warmed up, we will begin painting our canvas using acrylic paint, glue crayons on top of the painting, and then use hair dryers to melt the crayons.  Sunday, we will use a second canvas for the encaustic paintings.  Students will be doing a lot of painting in during the 2 days of class using acrylic and wax. 

For questions or to sign up, please contact the Cheyenne Artists Guild at 307-632-2263.

Jenny graduated from Oklahoma State University, where she received a BFA in Studio Art and Art History with a concentration in ceramics. After graduation, she taught art at the Philbrook Museum of Art, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. After moving to Tucson, Arizona, in 2008, she taught art for the education department at the Tucson Museum of Art and was a docent as well. Jenny’s fiancé recently took a job in Cheyenne, moving them again at the end of August this year. She joined the Guild in September and is currently the Chairman of Publicity at the guild, and has studio space at Clay, Paper, Scissors Art Gallery in downtown Cheyenne.
