In this issue:   Meet the Painters     Peggi    •     Robin    •     Crisandra

Artista guests are inspiring, accomplished women of all ages and backgrounds, looking for a unique, shared experience. They have one thing in common- their desire to discover or rediscover their own creativity. They share a love of color, fabrics, gardening, decorating, crafting and outdoor activities. We believe all women have innate artistic talent. Some just don't know it yet. Come join us and find yours.

Join us for our upcoming En Cera encaustic safari beginning October 15th. Encaustic painting is an ancient and permanent painting technique rediscovered by contemporary artists. The nature of the medium is also suitable for collage, imbedding objects into the wax, and an unlimited variety of three dimensional effects. This can result in a layered, velvety sheen like the topping on a glazed donut. This workshop accommodates beginners and experienced artists alike, but prior art experience is not required. Students will have the opportunity to create several encaustic paintings and learn the history of encaustic and the nature of the medium.
