Exploring Mixed Media Narratives in Photography & Encaustic

Friday, Saturday, Sunday

July 22, 23, 24

10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

With Lorraine Glessner

$300 + $40 materials fee + Students must bring additional materials estimated at $15.

 

This workshop takes the exciting combination of mixed media, encaustic and the photographic image far beyond straightforward collage to include innovative materials and mark-making techniques in which to explore narrative. During photo shoots led by Lorraine, participants will create images to use as inspiration and/or starting points for a series of focus during the workshop. Utilizing the natural luminosity, textural and layering possibilities of encaustic, participants will combine and collage photographic images created during the workshop with found images, marks and texture to explore, communicate, or entertain through narrative. Considerations of the various types of narrative as a conceptual tool as well as creating personal narratives through journaling and mark making will also be discussed. Optional individual critiques with Lorraine are offered to all participants. Please note that participants should be prepared to spend time outside as well as in the studio. In the event that participants are unable to participate in the workshop walks, participants are welcome to opt out and alternative outdoor creative exercises will be provided.


Lorraine Glessner’s love of surface, pattern, mark making, image and landscape has led her to combine disparate materials and processes such as silk, wood, branding, rust, paper and more in her work. Lorraine is an Assistant Professor at Tyler School of Art, Temple University, a workshop instructor and an award-winning artist. She holds an MFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, a BS from Philadelphia University, and an AAS in Computer Graphics from Moore College of Art & Design. She has a diverse art background with skills that include painting, sculpture, graphic design, interior design, textile design, photography, digital imaging and much more. Among her most recent professional achievements is a Second Place award in Sculpture from Art of the State at the State Museum in Harrisburg, PA, a recently completed artist residency at Jentel Foundation and an acquisition by Kelsey-Seybold Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. Lorraine’s work has been exhibited locally and nationally in galleries, craft centers, schools, libraries, universities, and more. Like her work, Lorraine brings to her teaching a strong interdisciplinary approach, mixed with a balance of concept, process, history, experimentation, problem solving and discovery.
