Bee Creative Every Day – AEDM Day3


On Day 3 of Art Every Day Month, I took an encaustic painting class (painting using melted beeswax). I enjoyed learning a new medium and look forward to playing around with it more. My mixed-media collage features photos of my grandfather and Japanese paper. A few years ago, I created a collage book about my grandfather’s story of being the first Japanese-American employee at the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, so it was nice to reconnect with that.

Rock Paper Scissors, where I took today’s class, is a cool artists’ co-op in Oakland that offers free and low-cost workshops to help foster creativity, community and collaboration. Watch this YouTube video to see the space and hear more about what they’re up to.
