In Darla’ Introduction to Encaustic Painting workshop, you will learn the history of encaustic painting and its current resurgence as a painting medium. Instructor demonstrations, examples, as well as lots of student painting time allow for hands-on learning. This workshop covers exploring painting techniques with encaustic, fusing and layering. It also includes demonstration of collage and toner-based image transfers specific to encaustic painting. Other topics include choosing encaustic materials, studio setup, safety considerations and care of encaustic artworks.
Some painting experience is suggested but not required. Individual creativity and experimentation is encouraged while learning to paint with the molten wax (encaustic.) Darla is an excellent teacher as well as an experienced artist. She provides a professional, creative, fun and encouraging learning experience for all.
Workshop supplies include: birch plywood panels (to paint on) encaustic paint and oil sticks, encaustic medium, collage and image transfer materials.
Wear comfortable shoes, as you may be standing much of the day. Dress comfortably in clothes you don’t mind messing up — you could drip wax on your clothes and it’s hard to get out!
We will have working aprons and gloves available.
