Encaustic

Expanding your Encaustic Horizons

July 29-31, 10am to 3 pm

Tuition and Materials: $425

Are you ready to explore painting with wax? Join Kathryn Bevier for a 4th year returning to Lyme Academy of Fine Art. She will walk you through the basic fundamentals of the encaustic process and then you will have the opportunity to go further through focusing on several techniques, with plenty of hands on time for creating your own art work.

The encaustic medium offers a fantastic array of opportunities to work with all sorts of mixed media products. From pastels and pigment sticks we will explore the various ways in which to incorporate mixed media in a sound and archival way. We will begin with basic collage and image transfer methods and then move into exploring the addition of pastels and other dry media ending with the use of pigment sticks. You will be amazed at how versatile this medium is and the interesting effects you can achieve.

This is a highly exploratory workshop where the focus will be on opening up to the spontaneous nature of creativity, while also learning the proper ways of working with mixed media as it pertains to encaustic.

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.
