CLASS > EXTENSIVE ENCAUSTIC EXPLORATIONS IN TEXTURE @ Spruill Center for the Arts
INSTRUCTORS: Kim McGill Stuart and Penny Treese
March 7th and 8th, 2015 from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Special Two-Day Encaustic Workshop!
2-day exploration in encaustic painting will focus on creating tantalizing texture with pigmented wax. You’ll create and leave with 3-5 studies in that emulate textures from coral reef to smooth surfaces, reminiscent of glassy lake water at dusk. Embed or press objects into wax that are personal to your story-charms, sheet music, poems, branches and memorabilia. Practice enhancing textures with oil paint washes and rubs. Manipulate a wax surface with splattered water and fire. And use blow torches, irons and heat guns to create various surface marks and undulations. No experience required.
