Encaustic and paper are an incredibly versatile match and, with the addition of
pigment sticks and other materials, we will create works with an optical depth,
luminosity, and a painterly quality. Paper will be the foundation of our pieces which will serve as rich backgrounds for transferring photographic images on the surface.
Basics of studio safety, substrate options,
painting techniques, and archival work methods will be covered. All base
mediums and paints as well as eco-dye supplies will be provided, but students
will be encouraged to bring a variety of found papers and other materials to use.
No prior experience with encaustic painting required, but general art-making
experience is helpful.
