Intro to Encaustic covers all the basics of encaustic painting and more.

I first provide a lot of technical information and appropriate creative techniques that encompass the encaustic process.
Then, once I have provided this information and everyone has been given these tools to work with, I encourage students to implement these techniques as demonstrated and make them their own, utilizing their individual imagery and expanding their unique aesthetic voice. Students grow by pushing boundaries of creative expression, building images through layers and components within these mediums.

Technical information covered in the two day class includes:

mixing and applying encaustic paint
      working with opaque asnd translucent color
      surface manipulations
      transfer and collage processes
      mixing oil and wax
      safety and history of encaustic
      making encaustic medium
