Congressional Art Competition

Recently I had the honor and pleasure of helping to judge the 2016 Congressional Art Competition for high school students within the Fourth Congressional district. The winning piece will hang for one year in the Capital building in Washington, DC.  It was delightful to see the high quality and creativity of the work that was submitted by the students.  Choosing the top three out of so many fine pieces was extremely difficult.  The First Place winner whose piece will go to the Capital is Ms. Nemiah Miller from Spartanburg High School.  Second place is Ms. Mimi Tierney from St. Joseph's Catholic High School, Greenville.  The Third place is Ms. Carolina Galliard, Fine Arts Center, Greenville.

Encaustic Demonstration at Artisphere

Artisphere 2016 is almost here--May 13th-15th, 2016.  Get ready for fine art, music, food & fun in downtown Greenville.  I will be conducting a hands-on mini lesson in encaustic painting on Friday, May 13 from 4:00-5:00 PM in the "Furman University Art Lab".  It is located in the parking lot next to Postcard from Paris.


A Modern Approach to an Ancient Art
with Artist Patricia Kilburg
(includes materials)

Experience encaustic — the ancient art of painting with pigments dissolved in hot beeswax, the same process used by the Egyptians to make their mummy portraits. Using modern materials and methods, learn about the beauty and versatility of this luminous medium: basic painting and fusing, incising lines and marks, creating texture and more. Regardless of your skill level, you will create several small, beautiful encaustic paintings to take home. This is a two day workshop at my studio, 1209 Pendleton Street, Greenville. I limit the workshop to four people. To reserve a spot, call (864) 630-1652.

So many of you have been asking when I will be teaching an encaustic workshop again. Here are some new dates that I am offering:

Friday and Saturday, May 20-21, 10:00 AM-4:00 PM.
Friday and Saturday, June 17-18, 10:00 AM-4:00 PM.
Thursday and Friday, August 11-12, 10:00 AM-4:00 PM.
