It's REALLY happening! Sign up before June 1, 2016, and get $100 off the price of my upcoming workshop: Vision & Touch: Dynamic Surfaces in Mixed Media & Wax.
Location: Hacienda Mosaico, Puerto Vallarta, MexicoDates: April 23-29, 2017Cost: $1800/per person/double occupancy ($100 off if you sign up before June 1, 2016), includes 6 nights lodging (double occupancy), welcome reception, breakfasts and lunches, and 5 fabulous days of immersion in mixed media and encaustic wax. ALL LEVELS WELCOME!
Textures! Colors! Patterns and Shapes! These elements are everywhere, especially in the magnificent country of Mexico. Discover how to combine these rich “ingredients” to create beautiful works of art. Mexico is the land of intriguing old walls, windows, doors, signage and sidewalks. Crumbling, decaying flaking and rusting surfaces abound, combined with vibrant layers of colors and patterns.
Utilizing “photo-strolls”, sketching, mixed media and warm encaustic wax, learn how to interpret these dynamic surfaces that surround you. As an option, you may bring ideas/sketches/photos from home and favorite places that inspire you. We will employ “vision and touch” to create small “tacTILE” sample boards, using at least a dozen (or more!) mixed media techniques. For your final project, you may either assemble your beautiful “tacTILES” onto a larger substrate, or continue to explore the wonderful surfaces that inspire you.
Hacienda Mosaico, owned by Sandra "Sam" Leonard, has been the "go-to" place for art immersion in Puerto Vallarta for the past 12 years! It's a beautiful garden oasis, full of gorgeous mosaics and original artworks. You'll never want to leave!

I would like to reach out to you, my dedicated students, art lovers and art colleagues, about the possibility of a workshop I am considering offering in spring of 2017. It would be one week in length, with 5 days of instruction and/or "field trip" work, at the beautiful Hacienda Mosaico in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
You probably know by now about my passion for Mexico and its people, culture, color, textures and "soul". This would be your chance to see Mexico from a different point of view, involving all of the senses. We would be working, mostly, with the gorgeous textures and colors that Mexico has to offer, and interpret these through encaustic wax and mixed media. We will also work with photographs and wax (optional), encaustic monoprinting techniques and MANY painting & texture techniques. We would be using our eyes and hands to record the beauty of Mexico, through photo "strolls", sketching, writing and studio time. You would also learn about the basics of working with encaustic wax and mixed media. If you have experience with encaustic, then you can get to work right away!
The price would most likely range in about the $1800-$2000 (pp/double occupancy) range for one week at Hacienda Mosaico (includes "welcome" reception & freshly-cooked breakfasts and lunches on the pool patio), 6 nights accommodation and 5 days of art instruction/studio time. Please let me know your thoughts, and I appreciate your input! Hacienda Mosaico's website is here (take a look-it is GORGEOUS)! Sam Leonard is a gracious host who is also an artist herself, and has been hosting successful art retreats for 12 years:
My NEW encaustic paintings are showing at Local Color! February 5-March 27. It's right across the street from Pike Place Market, so make a day of it! I had a great time perusing the veggies at Pike Place Market after dropping off my art today. Yummy color!
