On-Line Photo Encaustic Demo & Lecture

September 20, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+0

Photography Workshops by Nancy Ori

Join Nancy for a fun afternoon of learning how to work with and think about layering your photographs using new and simple mixed media techniques. There will be a demonstration of several key techniques, lots of great tips, a lecture about the process with examples from contemporary artists, and a look at how abstraction, composition and wax can create amazing new pieces with your photographs.

Encaustic uses heated beeswax and colors to create unique works of art.  An ancient medium that pre-dates oil painting, encaustic enjoys new popularity today amongst photographic artists.  The process allows you to work in layers, adding photographs & collage materials into the wax as you build your piece, or you can simply cover a single photograph for a unique presentation.  Techniques like marking into the wax and filling the marks with color create varied surfaces and textures that cannot be duplicated with any other medium.

“It’s not that often that you find a teacher who is completely open and forthcoming with their wealth of knowledge and ideas. Nancy’s photo encaustic workshop was so informative, interesting, and incredibly fun. I finished with a feeling of inspiration not only for my personal creative projects, but new ideas for my photography business too. Out of 5 stars I would definitely give Nancy and this experience 5 stars.” Sonya K.

You will also receive a comprehensive handout to follow and create new work with incredible diversity from your current portfolio.  No previous art experience is necessary. You can share your photographs and get suggestions from Nancy on how to use them and what additional materials you may want to collect to compliment them.
