CAA presents workshops, studio visits, and seminars at which members study and create with a visiting artist. These sessions are extremely popular and are open to both members and prospective members.
In addition, our talented CAA members also hold collage and mixed media workshops, and these are detailed in our newsletter, along with other Regional and National Collage workshops. (The current newsletter is posted on our Home page.)

Collage Artists of America Workshop
Encaustic Fetish Figures
One-day Workshop with Rachelle Mark
Wednesday, October 29, 2014, 10 – 4pm
Get ready for a "luminous" new workshop! Meet new art buddies as we connect with each other in this illustrative learning experience. This will be an exciting, informative and fun workshop conducted by award-winning artist Rachelle Mark.
Encaustic is an ancient process that has seen a revival due to the work of artists Diego Rivera and Jasper Johns, among others. Discover its history and learn how to use encaustic to enhance your artwork. We will learn about and experiment with the encaustic process as we focus on applying it to our final project, the human figure.
Materials: All materials, skill information and wax for the encaustic process is included. Other suggested materials to bring are scissors, glue (YES glue is great), any collage ephemera you may want for embellishment, tweezers, paper towels, tarps for table and floor. Of course, you may use rubber gloves and aprons if you wish.
