ENCAUSTIC MONOTYPES - INTRODUCTION, Santa Fe, AUGUST 6-9, 2019
With this comprehensive introductory class you will leave with an armload of prints, fully inspired, with confidence to continue on your own!
Encaustic monotype prints are a versatile way of working in encaustic where the wax becomes one with the paper, making this encaustic easy to handle, ship, or store. We will master direct "zen" marks and print in layers to create depth, mystery and light. To print, we draw and paint with encaustic on the Roland HOTbox™ (which melts the wax) and then transfer the image to paper without using a press. Once we understand the intrinsic nature of the process, we can create finished pieces, add other media, or work in formats including scrolls, print installations, mounted and unmounted painted prints, and much more. The possibilities are limitless! Read more about techniques taught HERE
Not just about technique, this class will help advance your works in all mediums. It is a comprehensive overview of encaustic monotypes and a refresher for better composition and relationship of work to intention.
We provide scores of colors and four brands of encaustic paint so that you become comfortable with their many variables. Also covered: Mounting prints to boards, presentation options for framing and for display of free-hanging paper.
FORMAT: Demonstrations are interspersed with ample studio work time, discussion, Q&A, and critique. Class limited to 12
