Explore the endless possibilities of working with encaustic paint! Working on a series of small paintings, students will start with the basics - mixing paints on a hotplate, making and applying medium, fusing with a torch or heat gun - and then quickly dive deeper into techniques for mark-making, creating textures, image transfer, and building layers. Through creative exercises and experimentation, students will incorporate an assortment of mixed media including textiles, papers, oil sticks, ink, pastels, and more.
