Description

Encaustic: 3 Dimensional Forms Meet Wax

August 1-2, 10am to 3pm

Tuition and Materials: $300

Use the encaustic medium to fuse sculptural form with the wax painting technique. In this class you will have the opportunity to create a variety of simple forms and structures using recyclable materials and found objects as your armature. Once created, we will consider how the addition of color will play a role in the forms created. Finally, we will use the encaustic technique of fusing liquid wax onto the forms to complete our structures. No prior encaustic experience required.

Artist Statement

I am inspired by my surroundings and from memories. Wooded lots, expansive farmlands, and city scenes all generate the same response in me; finding the balance. I love the way shapes and forms relate to one another and how colors interact. I use color and the handling of the medium to try and capture the essence of what is before me. These aspects are an expression of me in my art, even more than the subject. I want my art to impart a sense of awareness, have a sense of place, a feeling of atmosphere. I am interested in aspects of unity, of how everything comes together to create a grounded feeling.
