Hot Wax: A Intensive Encaustic Painting Weekend (S19A18P)

Instructor: Julie Püttgen

This intensive workshop is an introduction to the art of painting with encaustic (wax-based) paint, but is also appropriate for more experienced encaustic artists.  Richly tactile, versatile and rewarding, encaustic painting offers new possibilities to experienced and beginning artists.  Class topics will include paint application & scribing, pouring, layering & glazing; working with opaque, translucent, and transparent colors; additive and reductive surfaces; textural elements; preparation of diverse painting supports; collage; and incorporation of found elements.

This workshop meets on Saturday & Sunday, August 24 & 25, from 9:30 am - 12:30 pm and 2 - 5 pm.
