Encaustic: Next Level with Dietlind Vander Schaaf

Saturday, August 4, 2018, 4:00 PM

The “Next Level” workshop is designed to take students beyond the basics involved in working with wax and resin. A hands on studio course, this workshop will offer participants a deeper understanding of contemporary use, while providing them plenty of time to develop and explore their personal ideas and visual vocabulary on larger or multiple panels. An emphasis will be placed on navigating the challenges of working larger and expressing meaning through an exploration of mark making and techniques to create translucency and depth. It is a prerequisite that participants have completed an introductory level class prior to enrolling.  Supplies: Potter's needle and assorted pottery looping tools, one or two unprimed cradled panel up to 12" x 12" and one unprimed cradled panel up to 18" x 18", and a roll of masking tape. R&F hot plates and heat guns, encaustic medium, paint, and pigment sticks will be provided, as well as soy wax, torches, and brushes. Supply fee: $85/ student is included in the workshop price. Encaustic, meaning “to burn in” in Greek, dates back to the 5th century B.C. Used as a contemporary medium, it is a versatile method of painting with a beeswax-based paint kept molten on a heated palette. Working on an absorbent and sturdy support, artists mix colors, apply wax, fuse, etch, layer, collage, transfer photocopied images and incorporate found objects.
