R&F Encaustic Comprehensive + Collagraph in Glendale, CA | Aug 23 - 25 | Caryl St. Ama


Class Levels: Beginner-Intermediate.

In this exciting mixed media class, we combine traditional encaustic painting techniques and approaches with the explorative, experimental process of collagraph printmaking. In collagraph, a plate is constructed, inked, and printed using a variety of textured materials or objects to create unique patterns and surfaces. For the purpose of this class, we will be using encaustic wax as our main substrate.

Plates can be composed using applications such as inlaid line, accretion, embedded objects, etc. For students who are interested in using controlled mark-making methods, a flat even wax surface can also be used successfully with drypoint techniques. You will have the option to make plates on reusable surfaces such as plastic, acrylic, and metal, or they can be made directly on an absorbent panel such as wood or encausticbord. The use of a panel then presents the option of keeping the plate itself as artwork. We will be printing primarily with the use of Pigment Sticks as an alternative to printmaking inks, which will dramatically expand the available color options for printing.
