Encaustic Painting @ The Astoria Art Loft
Jan 30 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Encaustic Painting Presentation and Demonstration

CLASS FULL – CLOSED

Encaustic Painting Presentation and Demonstration
Geisha series

Scott Leahing will lead a two hour encaustic painting presentation and demonstration.  Scott will introduce this ancient art of using wax as a painting medium and will also demonstrate the use of encaustics in other areas.  The discussion will include materials (waxes, heat etc) used in encaustics and discuss encaustics in terms of painting, mixed media and sculpture. There will be a limited demonstration of techniques using, tissue paper, photos, transfers as well as oil bars, watercolor paints, pastels, India ink, alcohol and shellac if time permits.

There will be some limited group participation.

No supplies are required by participants.

Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used. The simplest encaustic mixture can be made from adding pigments to beeswax, but there are several other recipes that can be used—some containing other types of waxes, dammar resin, linseed oil, or other ingredients. Pure, powdered pigments can be used, though some mixtures use oil paints or other forms of pigment.

Metal tools and special brushes can be used to shape the paint before it cools, or heated metal tools can be used to manipulate the wax once it has cooled onto the surface. Today, tools such as heat lamps, heat guns, and other methods of applying heat allow artists to extend the amount of time they have to work with the material. Because wax is used as the pigment binder, encaustics can be sculpted as well as painted. Other materials can be encased or collaged into the surface, or layered, using the encaustic medium to stick them to the surface.

About Robert Paulmenn
I was born in 1950. I graduated from the duCret School of Art in Plainfield, NJ in 1971, where my principle focus was sculpture. After working at Great Adventure / Six Flags Amusement Park in Jackson, NJ as a sculptor and mold maker, I began painting scenery for a regional musical theater company. It was working on the large scale of backdrops, flats and set pieces that sparked a new interest in painting.
  In 1980, I moved to NYC and attended the Art Students League of NY and the National Academy of Art, where I had the opportunity to study with Daniel Greene, Harvey Dinnerstein and Ron Sherr. More recently, in the summer of 2010, I took a workshop with Burt Silverman that not only helped me turn a more critical eye on my work, but also to remember many of the shared principles of my earlier teachers.
  My life has led me in a number of directions, which on the surface seem to have been great distractions from the path I started out to take. But these side trips and experiences have made me who I am today with the two constants along the way being drawing and painting.
My work can be seen at RiverSea Gallery, 1160 Commercial Street, Astoria, Oregon.

‘Robert Paulmenn’ Drawing & Oil Painting @ the Astoria Art Loft

October  ‘Robert Paulmenn’  Drawing & Oil Painting

Paulmenn’s class:  Saturdays, October 7, 14, 21, 28  – –

 9:30 – 12:30pm

Cost:  $125 

About the Artist

Robert Paulmenn graduated from the du Cret School of Art in Plainfield, N.J. in 1971 with a principle focus in sculpture. After working as a sculptor and mold maker at Great Adventure/Six Flags Amusement Park in Jackson, N.J., I began painting scenery for a regional theater company. It was working on the large scale of backdrops, flats and other set pieces that sparked a new interest painting.

  In 1980, I moved to NYC and attended the Art Students League of NY and the National Academy of Art, where I had the opportunity to study with Daniel Greene, Harvey Dinnerstein and Ron Sherr. More recently, in 2010, I took a workshop with Burt Silverman that not only helped me turn a more critical eye on my work, but also to remember many of the shared principles of my earlier  teachers.

EDWARD STRATTON — The Daily Astorian

Sandi Kelley is a certified Zentagle teacher based in Astoria

Sandi Kelley

Certified Zentangle Teacher

Warrenton

503-325-4442

info@tanglesandthreads.com

There’s a difference between Zentangle and mere doodling, says Sandi Kelley, and the difference is focus. She teaches Zentangle, a meditative process of drawing structured patterns (www.zentangle.com). Kelley, based in Warrenton, teaches classes by appointment and has pieces shown in various local galleries and at Coffee Addiction in Warrenton. Kelley can also be found on her website, www.tanglesandthreads.com/

What is it that you do?

“What I do is instruct and teach the art known as Zentangle. There’s been a lot of misconception when it comes to Zentangle. A lot of people, their knee-jerk reaction is how can they put a trademark on art. And that’s not what they’ve done. They’ve trademarked the name, the word Zentangle. But what Zentangle is, it’s not art, it’s actually a process of breaking down patterns and putting them into simple lines and simple strokes of the pen, to recreate them on paper.”

How did you get into this business?

“I was searching the big time-suck, Pinterest, and I came across some Zentangle work somebody had done, and I had never heard of it before. So immediately you go to the source, I went to zentangle.com, and found out more about it. Not only is it an art, it’s a very Zen-like, if you practice it every day. If you want to use it as a therapy, it works great, because it’s really easy to get lost in the focus of what you’re doing. I’ve been teaching now for two years, and it’s really hard to get into the school, because they only have five classes a year, and they’re usually booked within a week of notification. You have to go to the East Coast, to Providence, R.I., and you’re taught by the people who created Zentangle.”

Who are your main clientele?

“People who just are intrigued by the fact that we say there are no mistakes and anybody can do it. I was skeptical when I saw the stuff that was posted online. I doodled when I was in high school, but it never looked like this. This looks like doodling to me, and it looks like doodling to a lot of people. It’s been older, younger. I’ve had several men in my classes, but mostly women.”

What are some of the quirks or challenges of running your business?

“Mostly getting people to understand what it is and what it isn’t. I had a booth at the Sunday Market, and some people get really pugilistic about it being a trademark. And there was one lady who wouldn’t let me take a breath, she was so adamant that it was a terrible thing to do. My guess is that most people who think it’s not really an art to do this are people who could create this without a class, whose doodles actually look like something. But for those of us who had no talent and had doodles that were just pen marks, once I figured I could do it, anybody could do it, because I had no background, no talent, nothing when I started.”

About the Artist

Robert Paulmenn graduated from the du Cret School of Art in Plainfield, N.J. in 1971 with a principle focus in sculpture. After working as a sculptor and mold maker at Great Adventure/Six Flags Amusement Park in Jackson, N.J., I began painting scenery for a regional theater company. It was working on the large scale of backdrops, flats and other set pieces that sparked a new interest painting.

  In 1980, I moved to NYC and attended the Art Students League of NY and the National Academy of Art, where I had the opportunity to study with Daniel Greene, Harvey Dinnerstein and Ron Sherr. More recently, in 2010, I took a workshop with Burt Silverman that not only helped me turn a more critical eye on my work, but also to remember many of the shared principles of my earlier  teachers.
