Mini Encaustic Workshop

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a mini workshop in encaustics with artist, Vicky
Hoffman.

Class description: This mini encaustic workshop provides a hands-on introduction to the basic
techniques of the encaustic process – beeswax, resin and pigment. You will be introduced to
transfers, mark making, embedding elements, incorporating mixed media, papers, and other
secrets to achieve a smooth surface.
About Instructor: Born in Los Angeles, California, Vicky lives and works in her home studio. She
holds a BA in Art from San Diego State University with an emphasis in glass and metal-smithing.  Over
time, her work migrated to oils, acrylics and encaustic.
Vicky’s work is grounded in nature and is an exploration of the gritty side of nature. She focuses on
shapes and interesting colors. She strips away all of the extraneous material until the only thing remaining
are those shapes and colors. Weaving together the intricacies of the natural world with an
abstract environment, she creates new and unique surroundings.
She has appeared in several solo and group shows at San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, Chaffey
Community Museum of Art, Gallery 825 in West Hollywood, TAG Gallery in Los Angeles, Segil Fine Art
Gallery, FIVE 08 Gallery, Arena 1 Gallery and many more.
Vicky is a member of Los Angeles Art Association/Gallery 825. Her work has appeared in Kolaj Magazine
and Fabrik.
