17C308 - Photo Encaustic

September 9-10, 2017
Saturday-Sunday, 9am-4pm
Sarah Rehmer

17C308 - Photo Encaustic
17C308 - Photo Encaustic

This workshop will focus on combining photography with encaustic painting techniques as an alternative way to present your photographically based works and give them a more painterly look and tactile feel. Over the course of the workshop will explore different paper printing options for our photographs- from fine art papers, Asian paper and anything in between. From there we will take our photographic prints and embed them in the encaustic wax medium, which will allow us to over paint them, apply image transfers, color glazes and hand coloring techniques. Basics of working with encaustic paint, studio set up, safety measures and more will all be covered in the workshop. You do not need prior experience working with encaustic paint, but general art making experience will be helpful. Instructor will supply paint and medium plus all equipment and brushes needed for use during the workshop, as well as all printing equipment and paper.

Level: Beginner and above
