Advanced Encaustic Technique
DATE: Thursdays, Nov. 7, 14, 21, 2019 6:30-8:30pm
INSTRUCTOR: Claudia Zilstra
The encaustic medium offers a fantastic array of opportunities to work with all sorts of mixed media products. From pastels and pigment sticks we will explore the various ways in which to incorporate mixed media in a sound and archival way. We will begin with basic collage and image transfer methods and then move into exploring the addition of pastels and other dry media ending with the use of pigment sticks and printmaking. You will be amazed at how versatile this medium is and the interesting effects you can achieve.
This is a highly exploratory workshop where the focus will be on opening up to the spontaneous nature of creativity, while also learning the proper ways of working with mixed media as it pertains to encaustic.
All materials are included. Encaustic painting experience is recommended.
