Drawing & Painting Summer Session 1
May 23 – June 3, 2021
Encaustic and Mixed Media
This workshop will give you a safe and thorough foundation for painting with the fascinating medium of encaustic with plenty of time to explore its possibilities. We’ll begin with a brief history and then cover safety, tools, materials, painting, and fusing. Daily demonstrations will focus on technique and wax’s special characteristics, such as opacity, temperature, adhesion, and texture. Techniques will include collage, transfers, and combining oil and wax. And we’ll venture outside in search of nature’s inspiration, tools, and stamps. This workshop will also cover studio setup, framing, and presentation of work. All levels.
