Valley Ridge Part 2

I pried some more photos out of my dead little camera for you. What you will be seeing is all student work that came out of the class at Valley Ridge. The first few came from Kathy's Facebook site.







The spacious classroom. Each student gets their own table to work on.

Align CenterCoffee creamer and sugar bowl in the studio.

Most of these pieces are 8 x 10" on wood panels.

The students brought collage materials and I provided a packet. I always like to find some things I haven't seen before to incorporate.

This woman (Jessica) did some pieces in small drawers that I didn't get a good shot of. I'll try to get that image for you later.

This isn't even all the work that was produced. These guys were on fire.

I like this shot because you can see the waxy surface. Mostly you can't see that in photographs.

Another one of Jessica's Medusas.















I told you Kathy treats us like queens. ;-D













Hey. Someone brought a folder made in Mary Ann's online class! Gorgeous, isn't it? Whew! Three hours on this post; tried to import the video Kathy shot but couldn't do it. Decided to post the photos for those of you not members of Facebook. Later!!

ps - Look what I found!! The drawers have waxed and faux gold edges. She found a little cabinet at the 2nd hand store and just used the drawers. Brilliant!!

Ohmygosh --- these are absolutely magnificent. You're right. This group was absolutely on fire. I'm surprised the wax could even solidify. I wish I'd been there!

wow what great eye candy...i was always afeared of the encaustic because it looked way too confusing and over my head (and ability) but these pictures make it seem more achievable...if i wasn't afraid of hot wax and small rugrat hands getting into it. it looks like a fabulously creative time.

Absolutely amazing pieces...I bet the studio smelled of glorious beeswax all weekend long.

Hi Judy!
These are BEAUTIFUL and I am wondering if you might teach this particular workshop at Artfest next year? Are you ever going to do a workshop on those fabulous dolls you made?

Judy Wise said...

Hi Tara,
I won't be teaching at Artfest next year because the dates collide with the time I'll be in Australia. And I'll be teaching the dolls class at Art & Soul this October. I think that class is filled though. xo
