Investigate the art of encaustic painting in this very hands-on workshop and interpret and develop sketches/photographs/ideas about the landscape into encaustic paintings. Explore the ancient medium of encaustic whilst painting form, subject and varied approaches to examining the landscape. Making choices in what and how to approach the landscape, students will explore a rich variety of marks, transfer and stencil techniques. Class time will be divided between demonstrations, individual work time, and discussion about Maine’s strong contemporary and historical connection to landscape genre. We will also touch on proper studio ventilation, wax safety, and how to “finish” artworks in terms of framing and care. Students will leave with multiple finished pieces and the understanding of proper studio set-up.
*Starter panels will be provided by the instructor, but students are expected to bring their own panels for finished works or developed drafts. Upon registration, you will receive further details about panel choices, along with a list of additional materials that you are invited to bring to the course.
Open-sided tents will be set up for physically-distanced art-making with protection from sun and rain. In event of heavy rain on either or both scheduled dates, this class will be rescheduled for Friday, July 24th.
