encaustiCon® 2013- More Details
What happens to my registration money? Does my IEA membership pay for encaustiCon®? What else will I need to pay for at encaustiCon®? Below are more details to give a clearer picture of eC13.
Your fee pays for all meals, hands-on classes, and events at encaustiCon® 2013. Your IEA membership fee does NOT pay for encaustiCon®. We have a self-sustaining budget for encaustiCon® 2013 so that your IEA membership dollars go directly to membership art shows, programs, and member benefits. Rest assured that the encaustiCon 2013 committee is a good steward of your money, negotiating every component of encaustiCon, creating a great value for your conference dollar.
During the registration process, you'll be notified of things that you may choose to do that cost extra money. We strive to make your registration fee as all-inclusive as possible. Even on the evenings that we don't have a scheduled dinner, we have receptions with cash bars, non-alcoholic drinks, fun, entertainment, and hours d'ouvres, so you truly don't have to pay extra money to eat out if you choose not to do so.
We'll all be going out to the monthly gallery night, where we will highlight the local galleries that have encaustic artists in their gallery. And, as I'm sure you know, all the museums, etc. are open late and free. Our international juried show will be at Eggman & Walrus, near the hotel. We'll have a reception there on gallery night as well, awarding winners of the show and hopefully selling some art!
There's a one-time $20 materials fee to pay for all of your supplies for the workshops and hands-on classes that happen during the conference. Post-Conference Workshops are offered at a separate cost from the conference. They will be on the Monday & Tuesday after the conference. Prices and hours are set by the instructor. For your convenience, we collect the money for the instructors and give it back to them. Information about the Post-Con Workshops will be added shortly to registration and to www.encausticon.com
The IEA Members Only show is offered to members that attend the conference. There is no entry fee and you are guaranteed acceptance. You may turn in your artwork at registration check-in to save on shipping costs. The reception for the Members Only Show will be held on Saturday night.
This is just a taste of encaustiCon® 2013. There is intensive learning, food, and fun around every corner!
