encaustic with hélène farrar SOLD OUT

Sat. Apr 6 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

- $70.00

Let’s drip, pour, drag, layer, heat, and incise! Investigate the art of encaustic painting in this hands-on workshop using pigmented wax and a heated palette! Explore a rich variety of markmaking while investigating image transfer, etching, and collaging in this seductive medium. Take both your collections of drawings, collected papers, pictures and incorporate found objects. Class time will be divided between demonstrations and individual work time. We will discuss the historical context and contemporary activities of encaustic, as well as proper studio ventilation, wax safety, and how to “finish” artworks in terms of framing and care. Students will leave with finished pieces and inspiration! Bring a bag lunch.  $70 (includes all paint and materials) Instructor: Hélène Farrar
