Encaustic (hot wax) painting is an ancient medium, first used by the Greeks, that has gained popularity with contemporary artists. A permanent and nontoxic medium encaustic often results in exquisite, luminous painting effects. Daily demonstrations are followed by hands-on studio practice. Learn about suitable grounds supports, encaustic materials, combining encaustic and oil sticks, tools for surface incising, and stencils. This intensive course is designed for all levels of beginning, intermediate, and advanced painters, as well as those familiar with encaustic. The returning encaustic student will be guided to develop and expand upon a personal style and theme, resulting in an integrated body of work.
