Encaustic Painting Workshop


This intermediate to advanced level course explores visual design and painting techniques such as color, composition, form and expression - through the use of encaustic paint. Students learn and refine fundamental painting skills (color mixing, composition, value, layering), gain new methods for mixing encaustic paint with various media (oil, acrylic, ink, charcoal, collage, photographs), and develop their own unique subject matter and imagery to create visually expressive work. Projects introduce traditional and non-traditional approaches to still life, landscape, figure, and abstract subjects. Students may explore both painterly and sculptural approaches using encaustic. Working from life, photographs, and imagination, students complete four projects over the 10-week course.

Prerequisite: TBD
