Encaustic: Layers, Translucency and See Throughs
November 15, 2020 – November 21, 2020
Dietlind Vander Schaaf
This workshop takes students beyond the basics involved in working with encaustic, offering a deeper understanding of how to create paintings that suggest luminosity, depth and dimension. Emphasis will be placed on creating a sense of light, the balance and weight of composition, and expressing meaning through an exploration of accumulating marks, drawings and imagery. You will learn greater control with both painting and fusing and will have plenty of time to develop your own personal ideas and visual vocabulary. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
