Class Levels: Beginner -Intermediate
Our 3-Day Encaustic Comprehensive workshop provides students with an immersive experience with a solid base in techniques and best practices for using wax. Throughout this class, we encourage 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. Encaustic is adaptable to other media and artistic process, additional techniques we explore include collage, printmaking, image transfer, and combining oil and wax. After each demonstration participants have time to work for hands-on with the wax and explore each technique at your own pace following an individual direction. 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.
