vol / fullEncaustic Printmaking

3-daagse workshop o.l.v. David A. Clark

Encaustic Printmaking functions both as a primer to the encaustic monotype and as an exploration of the more advanced techniques involved in producing repeatable images while printing with wax. The purpose of this class is to expose participants to a wide variety of papers, tools, process and ideas connected to producing encaustic prints and to engage participants in varied technical process with an emphasis on adapting that process to expanding their own unique visual language.

Students begin by learning the basics and variables of the encaustic monotype: heat, paint, paper and pressure. They then progress to exploring techniques such as using additive and subtractive process, trace monotype, stenciling and varied advanced techniques such as cold composition that explore how to control line, placement, color and saturation. These techniques will allow participants to fine tune and nuance their printed images. Students can expect to create a wide variety of prints during this class encompassing a varied range of technical and intuitive process.

This class functions well for a wide variety of skill levels in printing, but some previous experience working with encaustic is helpful.
