In these hands-on workshops, students will explore the luminous beauty and versatility of encaustic—painting with molten, pigmented beeswax. This ancient art form has evolved into one of the most versatile mediums available to contemporary artists and offers many exciting, creative possibilities! The workshop will focus on encaustic painting basics, as well as how to easily and inexpensively incorporate encaustic into a regular studio practice. Equipment and tools, encaustic paint recipes, painting supports and more will be discussed. Students will learn how to create image, texture and line using a variety of techniques and how to embed collage elements, found objects and image transfers within translucent layers of wax. No matter your current medium or genre, encaustic has much to offer. Beginners are welcome, as are prior workshop registrants. Ample time for hands-on work will be provided.
