If you love layers and luminous rich texture, you will love working with wax. This hands-on studio course introduces participants of all levels to encaustic painting using a heated palette and encaustic wax medium. This course will provide demonstrations and opportunities to practice and apply 2D techniques, including application, fusing, etching, texturizing, graphite and Xerox transfers, collaging, mark making, and incorporating found objects. Option to work with a torch as well as a heat gun. At the completion of the course, students will understand the fundamentals of encaustic painting and will be provided with handouts for the different processes and supplies that were covered in the course. Students will have a number of small studies completed in the two classes. All supplies included. Bring an apron and wear closed-toed shoes.
