I am happy to announce that I look forward to teaching regular encaustic workshops and sharing dozens of techniques that you probably wouldn't learn from other encaustic workshops sine I have been working in this medium for over 20 years and I share everything I know.
I will start each day with a demo that can show you how to use mark marking, stenciling and oil glazes, and more, not just basic application of the hot wax. You will learn how to apply and fuse collaged layers, and discover the magic of creating with a gas torch. (If you really are timid about fire, there are heat guns available).
Learn how to use transparency to allow softening and pushing back strong colors. You will have up to 5 boards to work on so you can try different techniques. Everything is supplied.
No experience is necessary. I will work with beginners and developing artists alike. Included in the workshops is the history of encaustic, safety in the studio, how to make your own paint and the basic technique of encaustic painting.
All classes are 10 am to 4 pm, with a break for lunch and conversation.
Special arrangements for other dates can be made if you have 3 or more people interested in a workshop. Private classes are available.
