Encaustic Painting II

November 12th 9AM-4PM
Max Enrollment
More Information

A one day workshop to further explore encaustic painting techniques with Carolyn Todd.  If you have taken the prior session, feel free to bring any of your encaustic paints.  All supplies will be provided by the instructor.  All levels of adult painters are welcome, but a prerequisite knowledge of encaustic painting skills will be helpful.

Encaustic painting is created using heat guns and melted oil paint cakes that include bees wax and Damar resin.   This technique dates back to prehistoric paintings in many caves around the world, including North American sites. Artists such as Jasper Johns, Karl Zerbe, and Robert Rauschenberg modernized encaustic painting with pop themes and massive collages.

The class will include new opportunities to experience encaustic layering and collage. Small objects for collage will be provided or students can bring a small object or two. Objects need to be small: less that 2" and preferably flat or with a depth of 1" or less. Photographs, cards, small metal or glass objects can work.

Any questions - please email Lindsay

Please register by October 25th so that paint supplies may be ordered in time.
