EncaustiCamp 2011


Oh my. EncaustiCamp in Salem, Oregon in July. Mark your calendars. I'll let the photos do most of the talking. Here we are; most of us anyway. It's hard to get all the campers together at one time.


I baked brownies for the troops. Yeah, me in the kitchen! Hoo-wah.


Jessica Greene allowed me to use her photo montages here. Above from Bridgette Guerzon Mills' class. Boy, were her students lucky to study with her. 


This is Krista's piece made in my class but 100% her own creation. (I didn't write down last names - wah!) 


Taken in Trish Baldwin's class. Did you know she pioneered the amber shellac technique? Was one of the first to experiment with tar? She was not the one who told me this but I did find out. Man, we all owe her for those cool tricks.


Michele Belto's class in paper molding and wax. Very cool approach.


Trish's classroom was buzzing with creativity. Wow, great things came out of here.


We had a show at the end where we admired the work. 


It wasn't all slavery, however. We did manage to get quite a bit of laughing, late night visiting and story telling accomplished. We all ended the retreat as friends; we can't wait to meet again.


The fab five teacher-guides; left to right - Michelle Belto, Trish Baldwin (Seggebruch), Crystal Neubauer, Bridgette Guerzon Mills and mwah, Judy Patootie.


We painted portraits.


This was one of Michelle Belto's demo pieces. See what I mean? (awesome!) 


Oh, is there anything more compelling than the human face?



More "student" work.







And now if you're not too exhausted I will direct your attention here where you can read about the latest goings on in Judy-and-Stephanie land. She says it so well and at this moment I can hardly hold my head up. Someone called it ExhaustiCamp and boy, that's how I'm feeling now. Come and join us next year. You will love it and learn so much.

And go here too. ZZZzzzzzzzzzz

LOL, I am always amazed at how small a world it is (the art world). I took a workshop from Trish at Inspired this year (Donna Downey's retreat). I specifically told her I wanted to create a 'Judy Wise' piece, lol. And I did try (she had WHITE wax! I was so excited!) I still have to say (I just told my hubby) that my one wish is to take a class by you! Alas, I am on the East Coast (North Carolina). I hope to be able to one day!

Awesome art, but how could it not be with a teacher like yourself!

And fun was had by all!
I am so happy to have had your instruction. You broadened my horizons, and you are such an encourager.
Thanks, Judy.

Fabulous post. There are times that I wish I could tele-port so I could participate in all the great workshops in the States, but I am happy that I am giving my 55th workshop tomorrow, here in beautiful San Miguel de Allende
