C3 Annual Meeting
Encaustic Mixed Media with Jenny Learner
Saturday, June 24, 2017

Join C3 for a hands-on look into encaustic art at our Annual Meeting.

Jenny Learner, Chicago encaustic artist, will show us the ins and outs of the ancient medium of painting with molten beeswax and pure pigment. Imagine painting and sculpting within the wonderful realm of flowers and honey. The medium’s luminosity, transparency, aromatherapy, alchemy and unexpected results are a constant surprise.

No experience necessary to enjoy this medium. Everyone will walk away with a piece of their own art. All materials will be provided but if you choose, bring paper, images, fibers or other small things you might want to incorporate into a mixed media piece.

Chicagoan Jenny Learner has been making art her entire life. Classically trained at the American Academy of Art and self-taught in interior, surface design & photography. For over 40 years this multi-faceted artist has been designing custom room dividers, screens, hand-painted wall coverings, fabrics, murals, site-specific art. She exhibits, teaches, curates, juries locally and nationally. A featured artist in “Encaustic Art in the Twenty-First Century” by Anne Lee & E. Ashley Rooney, “Dining Among the Stars” by Michael Curry, several Chicago magazines and newspapers. Her work is inthe permanent collection of the Encaustic Art Institute in Santa Fe New Mexico and in many private collections worldwide.

Afterwards, we’ll take a short walk to Antique Taco for some eats provided by C3 and hold the election of our Board of Directors for 2018.

This event is for C3 members and their families only. Please RSVP by June 21 so we have enough materials and space for everyone.
