DRAWING & PAINTING FALL SHORT SESSION
SEPTEMBER 24 – 29, 2023 (four studio days)
Making your Mark: Encaustic Painting and Photo Collage
This encaustic workshop will bring together several basic techniques to create beautiful, layered paintings rich with texture and translucency. We’ll explore color mixing, scraping, and developing imagery with a focus on using photographs as collage. This process involves printing photographs on lightweight tissue paper and embedding the images in the encaustic medium. We’ll also explore image transfers. Layers can be created by using oil sticks to add pigment above or below the photographs for color and depth. The workshop will also include a brief history of encaustic painting and information about supplies, tools, safety, and preparation of substrates. Lots of one-on-one studio time will help you create and develop a body of work, gain confidence, and expand your voice with encaustic. All levels.
