ONE SPOT LEFT!
What is encaustic without texture?
The sculptural and tactile quality of encaustic is undeniably alluring. This 2-day workshop will open the door to the many ways of integrating texture, incision and pattern into your encaustic paintings. You will learn how to successfully use stencils and how to customize the outcome so your artwork is unique. In addition to textural surface manipulation you will also learn how to achieve the coveted ultra-smooth encaustic surface! The basics of encaustic painting will be discussed as well such as information about materials, tools, safety and studio set-up. We will not be working towards a “completed painting” in this workshop; the emphasis will be on familiarizing ourselves with the application of the wax by creating multiple sample boards. In addition to having painted a handful of encaustic creations, you will walk away with an understanding of why this medium is so alluring (and I warn you, addicting!) This workshop is limited to only four students so you will have plenty of one-on-one support.
There will be a 45-minute meal break mid-workshop each day.
