Next workshops



introductory encaustic workshops, March 29 & 30, and April 19 & 20. The first two days of the workshop, we will cover the basics of making and using the paint and heat sources. Demonstrations include: tools and techniques for fusing, layering and scraping/scribing, building up of texture, line and edge and collage.

The advanced technique workshops are April 1 & 2 and April 22 & 23.
The last two days we will focus on surfacing, embedding, transparencies, glazing and incising. We will explore assemblage, casting, carving, and working 3-Dimensionally, monotype, image transfer, combining oil and encaustic and dipping. You will have four finished paintings after the workshop. It is necessary to have experience in encaustic to utilize this advanced workshop.

I provide all materials necessary: wood panels, brushes, encaustic paint, oil paint, cutting tools, heat sources, and as much instruction as you wish, but you may want to bring some of the following:
* Special papers, collage elements, transfers
* Small objects to embed in the wax
* Drawings or images that you'd like to recycle

The cost is $200 U.S. or the equivalent in pesos, plus $25 materials fee. Checks or cash are acceptable. A 50% deposit is required at registration. contact me by email with any questions. ezshwan4art@yahoo.com.
