The layering process of encaustic painting produces impressive results with luminous surfaces and textures. During this workshop students work with transparent colors, imprinting and casting with botanical materials, stencils and texture. You will explore lines, dots and patterns with the stylus. Demonstrations are followed with time to improvise. Understanding the properties of encaustic is the first step to incorporating it into your own work. Participants will emerge with a range of skills to deepen the direction of their work and the confidence to create using the new abilities learned in class. Open to all skill levels.

Sept 22, Saturday Workshop at Visarts.org

complete

Explore encaustic painting, an ancient method brought up to date with new equipment and materials. This process combines pigment, beeswax and natural dammar resin to harden the paint and give it shine. Demonstrations will include: melting and fusing, creating layered patterns with unique rubber stencils, embedding paper, leaf imprints and casts, as well as creating texture.

September 13 Six Thursday Mornings 10-1230pm at the Visual Arts Center

2 spots open as of August 26

Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, is an ancient painting method that combines pigment, molten beeswax, and resin. Finished pieces can appear luminous, smooth, shiny, or textured, as well as three-dimensional. This makes the medium ideal for working in both abstract or representational styles. In this class you’ll explore melting and fusing the wax, making clean lines and edges, and methods of collage and texture.

Encaustic and Photos at the Visual Arts Center, Aug 25

11-4pm Saturday August 25

Explore ways to incorporate your photos in an encaustic piece. You’ll learn how to add images to a panel as collage or attach the whole image directly to a panel as a basis for further work. We’ll try a pour, then explore layering and surface embellishments only possible with encaustic. Experimental ideas are welcome.

August 14 – 16, 2018
Tuesday – Thursday
10:00am – 4:00pm
This workshop is for students who are new to encaustic and for those who want to expand theirskills and explore more possibilities with paint.
The hot wax layering process of encaustic painting produces luminous surfaces and textures. After learning surface preparation and some background information, participants in this three-day workshop will experience the process of applying layers of transparent colors, imprinting and casting with botanical materials, incorporating image transfers, and working with stencils and textures.
Step-by-step demonstrations will be followed by plenty of time to work and improvise throughout the days. Participants will emerge with a range of skills to deepen the direction of their ongoing work and confidence to create paintings incorporating new skills.
Although Lynda works in a nonrepresentational style, she finds encaustic to be a versatile medium for all types of work. Understanding the properties of encaustic is the first step to incorporating it into your own work. Wherever you are with your art, Lynda will take you to the next level.
( Students must purchase some required materials.)
