Transparent + Opaque Encaustic Painting: Discovering Patterns and Luminous Color With Lynda Ray

4 Day Course  9/27/2022 – 9/30/2022

10:00 AM – 4:00 PM $650

Email natalie@ahhaa.org to be notified when registration opens

During the workshop participants will work with a variety of tools, botanical materials, transparent as well as opaque colors along with unique rubber stencils. There will also be an opportunity to explore marks using an encaustic stylus. A complex web of connections is made through the layering of patterns, colors and marks. The transparent character of the paint reveals a history of the work’s development. Embedded in each layer there can be patterns and textures which lend the viewer to a very satisfying visceral experience. Many techniques will be introduced and how you combine them will be your individual voice. Basic ways of working will be developed during these 4 days where each participant will work on a number of pieces. You will develop another layer of complexity to your work without abandoning a good painting idea by incorporating these new techniques. You will broaden and deepen your visual idea. Wherever you are in your work, either a very beginner or more advanced painter you will move to the next level. If participants have worked with encaustic before, please bring in some pieces that you may want to continue to work on. 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 content of their work and the confidence to create using the new abilities learned in class.

Luminous Layering of Pattern, Imprints and Colors with Encaustic With Visiting Artist Lynda Ray

3 Day Course  5/31/2022 – 6/2/2022

10:00 AM – 4:00 PM $460

A complex web of connections are made through the layering of patterns, colors and marks. The transparent character of encaustic reveals a history of the work’s development and the glass like surface allows many layers to appear at once. This surface can be achieved with the final fused layer. Encaustic can also be very textural which can give the piece a very satisfying visceral experience.

During this workshop students work with a variety of tools, botanical materials, transparent as well as opaque colors and unique rubber stencils. There will be an opportunity to explore lines and dots with a stylus.
Demonstrations will be followed with time to experiment and improvise.
If participants have worked with encaustic before, please bring in some small pieces that you may want to continue to work on. 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.
