An excellent follow-up to either of the writing workshops offered in the My #MeToo series, this workshop will explore how to utilize text as an image source to create forms with words and how to use words as a basis to provide content in encaustic works. Techniques to successfully embed text and basic encaustic techniques are covered. Open to all gender identities. Deborah Kapoor is a Seattle-based artist who creates haptic, mixed-media paintings, prints, and sculpture about the distilled poetry within cultural markers. She holds an MFA from the University of Delaware, and her work is shown nationally and internationally.

About the Exhibit My #MeToo
The VCA gallery show for the month of October will provide a platform for artists’ response to sexual abuse and harassment. Throughout the month, events and forums will be offered to engage the community in authentic, safe, and respectful dialogue to explore our shared experiences and to learn how we can come together to create a new narrative.
In conjunction with our October gallery show, My #MeToo, VCA is offering a series of free workshops to anyone interested in using the arts to explore the themes and conversations that have evolved out of the #MeToo movement. The workshops are free to participants, but you must register in order to reserve your spot. Participants will have the option of including their completed artwork in the October gallery show. Written work can be included in the show as a stand-alone piece or incorporated into visual artwork.
