June 3 Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill, MA

This workshop is for those who have had some experience with encaustic painting and who are interested in using texture and patterns to not only enrich the surface of their work but to build the structure within the painting. You will have the opportunity to try the accretion technique using a slightly cooler brush, the heated palette knife to create stalagmites of wax, a thick stencil to create pattern and the batik pen for serpentine lines. You will have hardware store items as well as tools that are usually used for other mediums available to try out.

May 18 Encaustic Painting Workshop at Visarts, Richmond, VA

Encaustic Painting Workshop



All Levels
Encaustic is a luminous medium that is made up of molten beeswax, pigment and resin. It can be smooth and shiny, textured and three-dimensional all on the same painting. It is ideal for working abstractly or in a more representational style. Encaustic, once an ancient process, is now updated with new tools and equipment. We will explore melting and fusing, line and edge, collage and texture. You will be given a small piece of board (4x5”) on which to practice each technique demonstrated, and should bring wood panels up to 9x12 for larger more resolved work. The equipment, paint, medium, brushes and tools will be provided. No encaustic experience necessary. For students who have taken encaustic painting in the past this is an opportunity to review processes, delve into an idea more deeply or try something new.
