Sarah Rehmer-Encaustic Painting and Collage Workshop
Fri, Jul 28, 2017, 9:00 AM – Sun, Jul 30, 2017, 3:00 PM EDT
Learn the fundamentals of painting with encaustic paints and medium. This three day workshop will cover color mixing, making glazes and safe studio practices for working in this versatile medium. We will also work with the various characteristics that make this medium unique - from optical depth, to texture and mark making - as well as working with image transfers and mixed media and collage applications. Part of day one will be spent using wax and other materials to create our own collage papers.You will come away with a basic understanding of the media and fusing techniques, as well as how to incorporate encaustic painting into your current studio practice. You do not need prior experience working with encaustic paint, but general art making experience will be helpful. Instructor will supply paint and medium plus all equipment and brushes needed for use during the workshop.
