Photo Encaustic Workshop

October 6 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm EDT


Join Nancy for a fun day of learning how to work in this creative and forgiving medium.  Students are invited to layer their photographs with exciting and simple mixed media techniques to create new work with incredible diversity from your current portfolio.  There will be a presentation demonstrating several key techniques, a discussion of the photo encaustic process with examples from contemporary photo artists, and a look at how abstraction, composition, design and wax can create amazing new pieces with your photographs.  There will be time to look at your images and make suggestions on how to use them with the encaustic process & what additional collage materials you may want to collect to compliment your images.  There will be several demonstrations and plenty of time for hands-on to learn the techniques.

During our session, there will be plenty of room for lots of creating with a great opportunity for one-on-one time with Nancy to walk you through the process.   Expect to leave with an inspired imagination and at least one finished work.  All necessary wax, colors, boards to work on, equipment, & tools will be supplied to get you started. You will also receive a comprehensive handout to follow and learn more after the workshop. No previous art experience is necessary. You only need to bring your photographs and a playful spirit.

This workshop is for any level of artist with emphasis on beginners.

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 photography 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 mounted photograph for a unique presentation.  Techniques like marking into the wax and filling the marks with color create varied surfaces that cannot be duplicated with any other medium.
