REDWOOD HIGH SCHOOL
If you have worked with Bees Wax as a medium, you know what a creative adventure it is to paint, sculpt and carve this luscious material into your creations.
If you are curious about Encaustic and a beginner, this workshop will walk you through the basics and allow for time to create a beautiful piece ready to hang!
So once you have experienced the magic of working with wax, you will start to discover infinite ways of expression. During this continuing workshop, we will have time to play with the following techniques:
*Laying down layers of transparent wax
*Mark making using a variety of tools.
*Carving in, intarsia (like wood inlay).
*Photo image transfer on encaustic surface. Bring a toner based photocopy and learn how to turn it into a decal, while embedding it into wax.
*Cutting your own stencils. make your own design or patterns that will create a bas-relief surface of colors.
*I will bring my hand made stencils to share.
*Using oil pastels for depth and mark making.
*And of course, following your own art making experiments and discoveries with me nearby to help you if needed.
As well as using small boards for learning techniques, I will provide larger cradled panels for a final piece.
If you are experienced and wish to work larger, feel free to buy a panel or bring a plywood base to work on.
Optional: Bring images/memorabilia/small objects to collage into your work.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
