Luminosity, Lines and Transparency In Encaustic

SEPTEMBER 29, 2019 – OCTOBER 5, 2019

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.
