I applied for and received an Instructional Development Travel Grant to assist me in attending both the 12TH International Encaustic Conference in Provincetown, MA and a 2-day post conference workshop “Cold Wax Demystified with Miles Conrad” at Truro Center for the Arts in Truro, MA.

Both of these events provided me with a unique opportunity to participate in advanced intensive instructional encaustic and cold wax topics that will enhance my teaching within the Painting Area of the Frostic School of Art.

My purpose in taking the workshop on cold wax was to enable me to teach students how to use it in a way that is archival, safe and informed. Cold wax medium can be mixed with oil paint or pigment sticks to create different effects. The information from this cold wax workshop on how to teach cold wax processes ensures that painting students in the Frostic School of Art are given exposure to cutting edge painting technology.
