THIS IS A TWO DAY WORKSHOP: October 17 & 18, 2023
"Materiality and Encaustic: Reimagining the Substrate"
Explore mixed media, relief and three-dimensional approaches towards transforming the substrate as we build new strata as the foundation of paintings.
Learn how a mixed media approach can enhance encaustic painting and bring a new dimension to your work. Specifically, regarding the substrate not as a base, but as an integral part of the creative journey.
Focusing on upcycling and repurposing materials compatible with encaustic, such as recycled cardboard and cartons, we will form the structures of relief paintings while integrating the substrate into works of art.
Elevate your style and intention by realizing the potential of newly transformed found objects.
Master the use of encaustic as an encapsulater, both as a paint and binder, while a more sculptural approach towards painting is discovered.
Note: The instructor will notify students of any materials needed (if any) prior to the workshop.
