Encaustic is considered one of the most ancient painting techniques in the world. It is a paint that is composed of beeswax, damar resin and pigments. The world “encaustic’ comes from the Greek “encaustikos” “to burn in”, referring to the process of using heat to fuse the layers together. It was notably used in Favyum mummy portraits in Egypt around 100-300AD. This technique was lost for hundreds of years. It was re-discovered again in 18th century and it was reviewed in the twentieth century largely by Jasper Johns. Today, encaustic painting is experiencing revival. Students will learn in this workshop about the studio safety, how to make own encaustic medium, how to create mono prints & photo transfers and how to use hot wax in combination with other materials to create mixed media artwork. Experimenting will be highly encouraged. Students will have an opportunity to create their own artwork under my supervision or they will have an option to choose from projects that I will have available. Group demonstrations and friendly critiques will be an essential part of this workshop. “Encaustic Painting & Collage”workshop is designed for students of all levels and interests.
