ENCAUSTIC PAINTING AND COLLAGE, Santa Fe, JULY 9-12, 2019
We find that one or two day painting workshops leave the student-artist under prepared. With our 4-day workshop, Comprehensive Encaustic Painting + Collage, you will learn virtually all techniques, use many tools, and have time to practice and develop your works. This is also a great workshop to refresh, refine existing skills, and work larger.
The workshop provides hands-on experience and a full range of topics, with time for skills to develop. We cover safe practices, grounds and substrates, fusing with torch, lamp, and heat gun. Additional techniques include: translucency, glazing, building texture, smooth surfaces, layering, scribing, excavating, wax and oil, collage, drawing onto wax, stencils, image transfers and much more!
An afternoon field trip to Santa Fe Galleries to view encaustic works will lead to discussions, including ways to develop the work's content and find your unique voice with the medium. We also cover: setting up your encaustic studio, purchasing materials, tips for working larger, shipping, and care of encaustic works. Students will leave inspired and prepared to continue on with confidence.
