The Next Level workshop is designed to take students beyond the basics involved in working with wax and resin. A hands on studio course, this workshop will offer participants a deeper understanding of contemporary use, while providing them plenty of time to develop and explore their personal ideas and visual vocabulary on larger or multiple panels. An emphasis will be placed on navigating the challenges of working larger and expressing meaning through an exploration of mark making and techniques to create translucency and depth. It is a prerequisite that participants have completed an introductory level class prior to enrolling.
