Our new Pigment Stick Mixed Media Lab allows artists to explore the many possible applications of R&F Pigment Sticks, encompassing traditional and alternative approaches and materials. In addition to pigment sticks, we will also demonstrate encaustic for those students who are interested in combining these two highly compatible media. We call this a lab rather than a workshop because we want to encourage artists to come back again and again to use our wonderful space (completely stocked with paint!) as their studio. Benefit from our instructors’ guidance and feedback on your projects, and enjoy the camaraderie of other participants. This lab is a great opportunity to work with a luscious, loose and free painting medium. 

Like our encaustic mini workshops, the class will consist of a one-hour demonstration followed by independent work time, with the option of one-on-one consultation with the instructor. Demonstrated techniques and topics of discussion will vary each month according to the interests of the attending artists. Not interested in the demo? Then just get rPigment Stick Mixed Media Lab is held at R&F in Kingston, NY the forth Saturday of every month from 11am to 4pm.  Come join us for our kick-off on Saturday, March 23rd!

The cost is $65.00 and includes all paints.
