Valentine Encaustic Painting Workshop: February 9th AFTERNOON Intermediate Level
1:00 PM to 4:00 PM, February 9, 2019,
This workshop will explore techniques and best practices for using wax. Develop your creativity using brushwork, fusing, layering, mark making and mixed media. Students will be introduced to current approaches to studio setup, tools and health and safety. This class examines specific characteristics that make wax a unique material to work with including opacity, temperature, adhesion, and texture. Additional techniques in encaustic will be explored including collage, printmaking, image transfer, and combining oil and wax. After demonstrations of various techniques, participants will work hands-on with the wax using a Valentine's Day themed item for a substrate. Artists working in any medium will find this workshop an exciting opportunity to grow their visual vocabulary with wax or participate in studio work time with the materials and equipment. It will be instructed by Beth Genson, a well-known Bowling Green encaustic artist.
