Intro to photo-encaustic painting
Please join me on Whidbey Island, T/W June 25-26 from 6-9pm for a two-evening introduction to this unique style of art-making. We'll spend three hours each evening learning about the tools, materials and process of photo-encaustic, and you'll leave with a personal piece of art that you have created. Register early, since you will need to purchase and collect a few items and supplies before the first class!
Introduction to Photography-based Encaustic Painting
Photo-encaustic is a relatively new synthesis of ancient encaustic painting techniques (beeswax, tree resin and heat) and contemporary photography. Combining encaustic with your original photographic images can creates a mystical, luminous or dimensional quality not often found in traditional photography. Adding textures such as brush strokes, scratches or incisions, pigments, and/or mixed media and found objects offers an unlimited source of inspiration. Images can be embedded in or transferred to the encaustic surface, and the result is a personal and soulful artistic expression. In this class, you'll learn basic encaustic painting and photographic transfer techniques, collage and composition. Suitable for teens and adults.
$85 plus $35 equipment fee, materials list will be provided
