Encaustic painting workshop in Kirkland Lake / by Amanta Scott

I was invited to direct a workshop on encaustic painting at The Museum of Northern History in Kirkland Lake, where my work Waiting is now on exhibit for a full year leading up to an exhibition of my work Parallel Lines in March 2018.

I spoke about the history of encaustic painting, my own journey with encaustic painting and shared stories about the evolution of Parallel Lines — an interactive art installation and social engagement project.

I then gave a demonstration of encaustic techniques. The hands-on demonstration workshop was held at Cesar Forero's wonderful painting studio which he also designed. Participants seemed to have quite a lot of fun. I certainly did. The community is very warm and welcoming.
