Wax, Paper, Scissors: Exploring Encaustic and Paper
June 30, 2019 – July 13, 2019
This workshop focuses on creating imagery with encaustic-infused paper and other collage materials. Following an introduction to basic painting and surface preparation techniques, students learn how to prepare and infuse a variety of papers, printed imagery and other permeable materials with this versatile wax-based paint. Through a series of classroom demonstrations, participants discover how these encaustic-infused elements can be cut, layered and manipulated in several possibilities. A guided project kicks off your exploration and individual experimentation is highly encouraged and supported in the studio. Whether your work is abstract, representational or somewhere in between this workshop has something for you! Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $1050
