Q: Do I need to be in my studio for the live sessions? Will we be working then?
A: You will not be working during the live Zoom meeting. The Live session is a time to review works from previous assignments; watch my videos of demos for the next assignment; and for Q&A.
Q: When will I have access to the class material? When does access end?
A: Upon registration, you will have access to the supply list so you can begin making orders of paper and brushes as needed.
On January 1, you will receive access to a pre-class video assignment which includes gathering materials on meditative walks, making simple tools/brushes, and exploratory marks with ink. (We will show some of your results at the first live Zoom class.)
Access to recordings and course materials ends three months after the start of the class.
Q: Does this course require special equipment?
A: No equipment is required at all. Papers, brushes, inexpensive and found materials to fashion tools, and India ink, are the primary materials needed. You can expect to spend a minimum of $50 for a large brush. Register soon so you can take advantage of the brush discounts available for the Holidays.
Q: Will we use encaustic? Do I need experience with encaustic?
A: No encaustic is used in this course. However, everything we create and experience in this short course is applicable and usable with wax/encaustic works on paper or panels. My follow-up courses, Dipped and Saturated, Carbon Lab, and Zen and Encaustic Monotype Mark-making, will utilize encaustic and the material and conceptual results from this class.
Q: What is the format of the class? Is it live or recorded?
A. Both are part of the course. Paula's demos are recorded (this saves time) and there are live sessions for Q & A, sharing of works, or additional demos as needed. Upon purchase, you will have access to the Welcome Videos, supplies, entertaining video assignments (due at our first meeting), and a detailed agenda of the course.
Zoom links and instructions will be sent before our first class meeting. These live sessions will also be recorded and made available so that you may review them and not have to worry about taking notes.
Q: I have more questions. How do I reach you?
A: You can email Paula at [email protected]
