Fun and Fearless Faux Encaustic II 
NOW OPEN!!
*Note to my ARTFUL GATHERING STUDENTS, this is a re-launch of that class!! Stay tuned for a different online class from me starting in January!!* 

Let go and experiment with a variety of mixed media painting and collage techniquesas well as documenting your creative process will be just some of the highlightsyou’ll experience over the course “Fun and Fearless Faux Encaustic II” with Jodi Ohl. Throughout the class, you will be immersed in building up layers and then reducingback and letting go as we create our hearty composition which will mimic encausticwork without the expense of purchasing encaustic products and tools. Week 1-3 we will experiment with a variety of background techniques, introducing students toeasy ways to build layers and depth using acrylic paint, tools, pencils, crayons,collage elements. Everyone will be encouraged to try a variety of color combinationsand techniques as we develop a style or look that best represents the fearless you! Moving into the last half of the class we will take our favorite background style/colorcombination and use that to create our final composition that will include moretexture, background layers, text and imagery before we reduce it back down with ourfinal layer of ‘Faux Encaustic’ mixtures. The samples for the class will be abird/nature composition which the students can recreate or try a subject of your own. The fearless you can be the one to decide but without doubt, we are going to go “big”and “bold” or go home. Students will also be encouraged to take pictures, and keepa journal as a form of self discovery during the class and beyond. Learning to letgo, use new products, experiment, and be committed to the creative process are allthat are necessary. No experience required to discover & make friends!   **NOTE...this is a RE-Launch of my class from this summer, NOT a NEW class!!

Here is hoping i win! I just tried this technique a few days ago and I sucked at it. I most certainly want to be fearless at encaustic and mixed media in general. I have recently began exploring the world of art and would love the chance to learn from one of the best.

debb said...

I am not fearless about much lol- and it does hold me back! However watching you video helps and I will go right now and dig out some paints and begin- fearlessly! Thanks for the inspiration and the opp to win!

Janelle said...

I want to be fearless about making collages in the near future. I have been making some art papers, which is a lot of fun. I just haven't put together a collage yet. Your class sounds great for helping me over this hurdle.

HipEmom said...

Hi Jodi! I'd LOVE, love, love to be in your class!! I've had to be fearless with my teen today by not letting her go to homecoming because of a failing grade, she hates me now, you're a mom so Im sure you can relate!...I've been fearless at work by taking on more responsibiliy...but I'd LOVE to be able to take some time for my SELF and be fearless with ART!!!!!!!!

Tweetybirds said...

Working on being fearless every day! Sent my first submission in for a magazine - and keeping my fingers crossed!

Lena said...

I am already fearless I guess becouse I took this creative journey without any knowledge about mixed media only with desire to get closer to the artists who create like you :)

Kelly Warren said...

Fearless? I think maybe I do get stuck in a rut some times and might be a little fearful of trying new things. I need to get out of that!

Dawn said...

I fearlessly flew to the States, a biggie for me as I hate flying and I did it alone....where there is a will there is a way xxxx

Rita alias alatvian said...

What a delicious class! I would love to be part of it. I've been fearless lately as I've been remaking my entire life (both by chance and by choice,) with a new life, leaving behind family and friends, new career, and at the same time jumping into a new art form. Bring it on! :)

I have been fearless about actually painting without someone telling me exactly what to do lol

Oh I so want to win a spot in this class! I have been wanting to learn encustics. I have even bought the bees wax now I just need to be Fearless and do it.

Deb said...

I have tried collage and mixed media but am not good at it! Fearless - I am not! I would love the opportunity to win a spot in your class! Thanks for the opportunity!

francine said...

Hi Jodi, first of all I love your work and seeing all these great artists has taken a lot of my fear out of doing my own artwork I was always afraid to do art, even though it was always in me, and now I am doing it! Thanks!

Jeanne Rhea said...

I want to be fearless about learning figure drawing/painting. Taking your class would be a step towards that!

I have been fearlessly trying to sketch everyday. The inner critic usually tries to stop me, but I push on! I love learning new art techniques as well. Guess that can be pretty fearless.

I have started my creative journey in mixed media and hand stamped jewelry and hope to continue on this wonderful path. I would be delighted to win this generous offer to help propel me on my path! xoxo Renee Burke of Happily Ever After by Renee Burke, LLC (happilyeverafterllc@gmail.com) xo

Fearless? Fearless to live the rest of my life cancer free! Getting a pet scan soon - hopefully i could say year 3 cancer free ;)

Sheri W said...

I am now starting a new journey in my career. It has been a dream for more than 20 years and it is here. Really scary though...I would love to be a part of your class as my art journey is equally important to me.

Kristin said...

I am working on being fearless in my art. I have a comfort zone and i'm trying to expand my horizon and try new techniques and learn more about mixed media, I hope it helps me grow as an artist. I hope to win a spot in your course, I don't even know what encaustics are but I would love to learn and discover something new :)

Cynthia Hanna said...

I have been fearless about learning to live with a drastic cut in income AND in moving across state to a location where I have no ties in the community. I want to be fearless in my experimentation with art and in maximizing my quality of life in spite of chronic illness and disabilities. Oh, and I fearlessly put my name into the hat - hoping that I win, lol!

Becca said...

I work almost everyday to become "fearless" in my art especially...to be able to paint outside of the lines and it will be OK. I think once I tackle that, living fearlessly in other aspects of my life will be easier. I would love an opportunity to take your class!

Debi From the Pacific Northwest said...

Great Fun!!! And I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for January too! What am I fearless about?? I'm pushing my art to new boundaries, and sharing what I know with as many people as I can!

LuniLadi said...

I have been fearless about learning metalsmithing. Dremmel,rivets,dapping and doming? Whodathunk I could DO that?! :) And that one fearless step led me to enameling....another fearless step! I'd love to take ANOTHER fearless step. Here's hoping I'm lucky enough to win.

Hello, miss Jodi! Thanks for telling us to stop by for a chance to win class tuition; always a generous gift during these tight ($) times.

In the last 2 weeks since the commencement of Art-is-you, I packed up my car and have been in Florida staying with my younger son, who is here at school. I've been having to set aside all my fears and worries about home and my older son, Tucker. I've had to tell myself that I have no control over anything that may or may not happen and that I need to let go of all my worries. The same has had to apply to something suspicious I have found (medically), as there is nothing I can do about it until I return. I have had to make a choice not to succumb to fear and deal with it in a timely manner at home. It is easy to fall prey to such highly charged emotions, but then I knew I would not be appreciating this special time here with dillon.

Cathy Bueti said...

Hi Jodi! Thanks for offering this amazing giveaway! I want to live my life fearlessly!! I struggle with fear on a daily basis and its something I work on and strive to master! :)

Shayla said...

Fearless- taking the creative every day challenge, just like you. Thanks for the chance. I like the idea of faux encaustics.

SherryL350 said...

I live with two teenagers and one four year old. I have to be fearless! (or at least don't let fear show) I loved the first faux encaustic class and looking forward to the next one.

Amanda St.Clair said...

I would love to win a seat in your class! What I've been fearless about lately...I started Art Every Day Month yesterday for the very first time. It's kind of scary putting myself out there but so, so fun!
