Presenting and Teaching at the 7th International Encaustic Conference

Each summer for the past 6 years I have been revved up about this time, because I'm getting ready to attend the Encaustic Conference, which is planned and presented by Joanne Mattera and Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill. This marks the 7th conference I will attend, and my 5th conference as a presenter.

This is such an energized and well organized professional event for artists. Each year I learn more, network, make new friendships, see work by artist professionals I admire, and well, just have a terrific time.

During this conference, I will be presenting a demonstration on Friday, May 31: Comparison of Tools for Fusing. This will be part of the conference at the Provincetown Inn. After the conference, I am teaching a day long workshop at Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill; also about Comparison of Tools for Fusing. This is a great opportunity to come and investigate hot tools, from heat guns to torches to irons. You can still register for the conference and/or my post conference workshop. So take a look at the conference website.
