From the author of Newly Released "Encaustic Workshop: Artistic Techniques for working with wax" We will be exploring the basics of Encaustic Wax with a strong emphasis on adding words to your artwork, Hence, "Encaustic Journaling"
Through the use of image transfer, letter punches, word and number inclusions, collage layering and textural expression, beeswax has become my paper, my paint brush and my pen!
Come join us in creating stand-alone or multiple storied paintings in encaustic that will reflect, dissect and express your own voice and inner musings.
The workshop will begin with demonstrations in basic encaustic techniques, followed by time to become comfortable painting in wax. From there all participants will explore numerous techniques as Patricia demonstrates then assists students through their own projects in wax journaling.
I will supply the wax, encaustic colors and the heating materials for use with encaustic so that you don’t have to invest in materials before you know what it’s all about!
I’ll also bring a small selection of collage materials and carving tools, but you’ll need to bring your own personality to infuse your work! Collect collage material, interesting carving tools, objects to press into the wax, image or photo transfers, and ephemera that you would like to embed in the wax.
Google ‘encaustic’ online to get ideas of what other artists are doing in this medium—you’ll get some great ideas for tools and items to bring.
While the only critical supplies are the boards and paintbrushes, you will be much happier if you bring as much as you can to personalize your work.
*If you have dietary restrictions, you are welcome to bring your lunch. There is a refrigerator and microwave on the premises.
