This event has concluded and is no longer current.
Art for Keiki- Encaustic Monotype Printing Workshop
Location: Manono Campus, Building 389 Art Studio
The process of creating artwork that is encaustic sounds complex, but is actually a fun and simple way to produce quick, colorful works of art with bees wax, damar crystals, and ground pigments. Encaustic Monotype Prints can be made more intricate with layers, adding ink drawings and charcoal rubbings. Participants will take home multiple prints and will be able to mount a single piece on a wood panel as a completed work of art ready for display. These prints are great as gifts or just to personalize a room in your home.
Saturday, November 18
Instructor: Kevin Diminyatz
Kevin Diminyatz is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. He graduated from Sonoma State University in 1995 with a B.F.A in Printmaking and a minor in Art History. In 1998, Kevin received a Masters of Fine Arts in Painting from Mills College and began teaching art in High School while maintaining a studio practice and showing regularly in Bay Area and Los Angeles galleries. In 2007, Kevin and his wife, Miho, moved from San Francisco to Volcano where he now lives and works as a lecturer in the art departments of University Hawaii Hilo and Hawaii Community College. Kevin's interest in encaustics began over 25 years ago while a student of Mark Perlman, who is an accomplished encaustic painter.
