Student work from Tyler School of Art, where I teach classes similar in content to this workshop.
Five days allows intensive time for critique, learning, applying and expanding on your current work to not only learn valuable techniques, but to grow exponentially as an artist.
Taught from an alternative, experimental approach with daily demos, critiques and discussions of ideas and progress. A lush, textured surface adds complexity, substance and reference to time passing. Because of the inherent properties of wax, the textural possibilities of encaustic far surpass that of any other painting medium. We will explore the myriad methods in which to create, add, embed and manipulate surface texture as well as more experimental and lesser known methods. Methods and materials covered in this workshop include the use of incising, heat sensitive fabric and papers, plaster and paper clay.
The correct use and application of layers create timeless works which reference memory, change and time. We will create personally designed fabrics and papers utilizing indigo, cochineal, rust and compost printing as well as silk paints, wax resist and bleach discharge.
