Class Levels: Beginner-Intermediate.
At the LaGrange Art League, in the suburbs of Chicago, Sarah Rehmer will guide students through an introduction to working with R&F Encaustic. Our 4 Day Comprehensive workshop provides students with an immersive experience with a solid base in best practices for using wax. Throughout the 4 days, Sarah encourages your creative development in painting, layering, mark making, and mixed media work. Following a historical overview of encaustic, students are introduced to current approaches to studio setup, tools, and health and safety. With a strong emphasis on approaching wax as a painting media, students become familiar and comfortable with brushwork, fusing, and layering.
This class examines specific characteristics that make wax a unique material to work with including opacity, temperature, adhesion, and texture. Techniques include collage, printmaking, image transfer, and combining oil and wax. There will be ample opportunities to ask the instructor questions on additional topics of interest. Artists working in any print or painting media will find this workshop an exciting opportunity to grow their visual vocabulary with wax.
