Spruill Center for the Arts Registration for Encaustic Workshops Open in Dunwoody, GA
Saturday August 22, 10 am to 4 pm
Instructor: Kim McGill Stuart
Explore the rich, touchable and textural qualities of encaustic wax. Spend the day creating tantalizing textures with oil pigmented wax, water and fire. Emulate textures from coral reefs to smooth surfaces, reminiscent of glassy lake water at dusk. Embed or press objects into wax that are personal to your story-charms, string, bottle-tops, branches and memorabilia. Practice enhancing textures with oil paint washes and rubs. Use blow torches and carving tools to create various surface marks and undulations.
INTRO TO ENCAUSTIC PREFERRED BUT NOT REQUIRED.
LEARN ENCAUSTIC WAX PAINTING ONE ON ONE OR WITH A SMALL GROUP… LEARN AT YOUR OWN PACE.
Kim will teach you the ins and outs of painting with encaustic wax. Learn to melt, color and paint with molten beeswax.
