Encaustic Painting covers all the basics of encaustic painting and more.

I first provide technical information in small bits 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 work, utilizing their individual imagery and expanding their unique aesthetic voice. Students grow by pushing boundaries of creative expression, building images through layering and color. We also will use drawing exercises using prompts to promote discovery of imagery. We will talk about how drawings can be brought into your painting practice to help further your visual direction.

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
