Emanuel - VBS

Today's young generation is engaged in a significant struggle for their hearts and minds. They are constantly being fed misinformation about their identity, their Creator, and the source of their salvation. Thankfully, God has given his children armor to withstand the battle between truth and lies, light and darkness, and good and evil.
Through this year's VBS, your children will learn how they can be a part of God's kingdom through salvation in His Son. Additionally, they will be equipped with the armor of God, enabling them to become "Keepers of the Kingdom" who can withstand the trials of the present-day battle for truth.
The topic for this year's Vacation Bible School is "The Armor of God: Keepers of the Kingdom," brought to you by Answers VBS. VBS will take place from June 26 to June 30, with each session running from 8:00 AM to 11:30 AM. Our primary objective is to prepare children to thrive in today's society. To register your child(ren), please use the digital link provided. Alternatively, paper registration forms are available in the church office.

Ashley Ellis Workshop

Sessions Run: Saturday and Sunday from 10am - 4PM, July 8th and 9th, 2023

Description: You know what's great about Encaustics? Its' versatility!! This art medium can be the jumping off point for endless possibilities. Join along with us as we learn the ancient technique of encaustic.  We will be using pigmented beeswax medium and leave the class with a number of completed art pieces. Even the very basic techniques create beautiful works.
In class we will cover:

Basic knowledge of encaustic, history & safety as well as;
1 intro project to learn basic techniques
1 project to learn image transfer
1 project to learn collage/texturing/excavating back and filling in with color
1 project to do a shellac burn on
1 project learning how to use encaustic for mono printing

Workshop will be lead by Ashley Ellis, professional artist and Instructor.   This workshop has something for every artist, from beginner to advanced seeking to explore the ancient art of Encaustics.
The workshop will run with minimum of 4 students / maximum of 16 students.
Each day we will meet at 10 am, take a small break for lunch (at students own expense)  and then end each day at 4 pm. Cost:  $295/person + $40 Materials Fee
***Class must be paid for in advance to hold your spot.
What to bring: Please dress comfortably for our workshop.  I advise not wearing your best clothing as it has a strong possibility of getting dirty.  Please consider bringing any snacks you may need and a water bottle for the day.  You will has access to a refrigerator if you are bringing a bagged lunch to help keep it cool. 
Please feel free to bring any mixed media elements, or sketches and ideas you may want to work into your pieces.  This is not required but participants in the past find it very rewarding when they can epersonalize their experience with their own artistic "flavor".  Great examples of what we can incorporate is organic materials, specialty paper, some foils etc.  I will have a small assortment of these things as well available for you to use.
Please add the $40 Materials Fee  at checkout this helps cover the consumable supplies as well as your encaustic substrates that you will be using for each of your pieces (approximately 5 substrates) and more.
What to expect:

Day One Workshop will include the overview of encaustics, the history and general safety when working with encaustics.  We will try to cover all the techniques in day one of the workshop, but any techniques we don't cover on day one we will be sure to cover on day two.  The second day of the workshop is built to allow you time and space to work with all the new knowledge you have gained during day one.  I will encourage you to flex your creative muscles and make myself available on day two to help creatively problem solve on each of your pieces.

Need more info: Contact Ashley at  if you have any questions. 
***  Travel, food & lodging at the expense of each student. Please reach out for any recommendations,
I am happy to share information, tips, and just say Hello!
