Event description

Description

Encaustic and paper are an incredibly versatile match. This workshop will begin to explore the possibilities of combining a variety of paper types and weights with encaustic medium and paints, as well as pigment sticks and other materials, to create works with a optical depth, luminosity, and a painterly quality. We will begin by making a few of our own papers through various processes such as rust printing and ink drawing. Basics of studio safety, substrate options, painting techniques, and archival work methods will be covered during the workshop. All base mediums and paints will be supplied for use, however, students will be encouraged to also bring a variety of found papers and other materials to include in their work. Students do not need prior experience with encaustic painting, but general art making experience is helpful.
