Commonly used paints are acrylics, watercolors, oils, etc. But have you ever painted with beeswax? Be sure to give this course a look if you are interested in furthering your painting techniques!
In this exciting one-day Encaustic workshop, you will explore creating translucent, layered paintings only achieved with molten beeswax. A brief history and description of Encaustic painting will be discussed as well as basic supplies and tools, safety, preparation of supports including application of grounds and fusing. An overview of a variety of techniques will be demonstrated such as image transfers, mixing your own paint, creating texture and working with masks and stencils. There will also be lots of studio time and one-on-one instruction. You will create paintings that will develop your aesthetic and artistic voice with this medium. This class could also be used as studio time if you have taken a class with Jodi Reeb before. All levels welcome and all supplies are provided.
