“Encaustic In-Depth: Mono-prints on Paper” Encaustic workshop (Mar 2018)

March 23 @ 10:00 AM - March 24 @ 4:00 PM

$395

Encaustic mono-prints are hot stuff!

This 2-day workshop is not to be missed!  Learn basic encaustic mono-printing techniques to create expressive, dynamic and exciting artworks!  Over the course of 2-days students will learn how to safely set up an encaustic mono-printing workstation as well as how to use specialty materials such as barens, squeegees and rubber tools.  We will use a mix of professional R&F encaustic paint as well as Enkaustikos Hot Sticks (AWESOME with printing).  Printmaking papers and specialty papers will also be discussed..  As an additional bonus students will also have the opportunity to experiment with a small variety of inks for added effect including Sumi ink, India ink and a little something special 😉  All students will have access to their own heated palette and will be able to pull full-sized prints (22″ x 30″) on the second day using a larger-than-life professional encaustic palette.

Encaustic mono-printing is a wonderful way to loosen up and think outside the box. Take this opportunity to fall in love with this HOT printing process and create a beautiful assortment encaustic artworks!

Oh yes…all materials are included!
(If you use all of the included papers you have permission to bring or purchase extra)

  • Tools:  Brushes, barens, rubber tools, scissors, squeegees, etc….
  • Printmaking Paper:  Students will receive a kit of various printmaking papers to use in class (If you use all of the included papers you have permission to bring or purchase extra)
  • Professional Heated Palette:  All students will have access to their own heated palette and will be able to pull full-sized prints (22″ x 30″) on the second day using a larger-than-life professional encaustic palette.
  • Safe working environment:  Limited seating offers you elbow room to spread out.  You get a whole table to yourself!  Galvanized sheet metal at each table provides a safe work space.  And oh yes, the classroom is ventilated!

All of the art materials are included in this workshop.  Here is a small list of things you should bring as well:

  • Bottled water, snacks and lunch (It is very important to hydrate yourself with encaustic)
    • I ask students to please eat outside of the classroom to get some fresh air. Drinks are fine inside the classroom.  There is a Starbucks across the street and restaurants within walking distance from the store.
  • Notebook & pencil for taking notes
  • Appropriate attire: jeans or long pants, no flip flops, long hair tied back in ponytail, avoid loose-fitting “flowy” clothes
