Transparency, Layers & See Throughs

Encaustic workshop with Dietlind Vander Schaaf

This is a three-day encaustic workshop designed to offer participants a deeper understanding of how to create paintings that suggest depth and dimension. An emphasis will be placed on composition and expressing meaning through an exploration of accumulating marks, drawings, and the creation of translucent layers. Students will also work with real and artificial metallic leaf and foil, iridescent pigment sticks and paint, and incorporate small metal objects into wax to create paintings that shimmer and reflect light. There will be plenty of time to explore and develop your visual vocabulary on larger or multiple panels.
