Encaustic Workshops Open at Spruill Center for the Arts in Dunwoody, GA
If you’re already addicted to the luscious layering of wax and empowering feeling of “painting with fire,” join Penny Treese and elevate your work to a new dimension. This is designed to introduce a variety of new techniques, as well as beginning to open a dialogue involving the content of paintings. Moving beyond technique, we will delve into what inspires each artist, guiding them into creating successful works of encaustic art.
Techniques explored: Creating pigments-translucent to opaque in a range of hues and tones, scraping layers, accretion texture, oil paint washes, embedding/embossing objects, dripping and oil stick rubs, and creating glass-like to raised textural surfaces.
Intro to Encaustic Painting EXPERIENCE REQUIRED.
