Encaustic Painting: Between The Layers
August 2, 2020 – August 8, 2020
During this workshop students will explore encaustic painting to create translucent, layered, smooth and textural surfaces only achieved with molten beeswax. Class discussions include a history and description of encaustic painting, basic supplies and tools needed as well as safety, preparation of supports, and application of grounds and fusing. Demonstrations will provide an overview of techniques such as image transfers, collage, oil pigment sticks and creating texture working with masks and stencils. The focus is on image making and the development of your aesthetic and artistic growth. Students will have time to create, join feedback discussions and participate in one-on-one instruction. Open to all skill levels.
