4 Day Comprehensive Encaustic Painting Workshop
Instructor: Sarah Rehmer
Time: 9 am to 4 pm, upstairs studio
Class Levels: Beginner--Intermediate, this class may be repeated by those who wish to further enhance their study fundamental encaustic techniques.
For those who cannot attend workshops in our Kingston facility, R&F is happy to bring their superlative workshops to a studio near you. Join artist Sarah Rehmer for a 4 day comprehensive workshop at the La Grange Art League just outside of Chicago. Participants that are new to working with wax will gain a thorough understanding of the medium and method. We invite artists that are already familiar with the encaustics to come and continue building their skills.
We begin with a historical overview, introducing the classical method of encaustic painting, and then move into the 21st Century, demonstrating a wide variety of ways that encaustic can be used by contemporary artists today. Artists working in almost any medium will find these workshops are an exciting opportunity to expand their visual vocabulary with wax. Students are encouraged to bring an open mind and a willingness to experiment with a new material. We will explore encaustic as a pure painting medium as well as a component or enhancement of mixed media works. The dynamic is high-energy and diverse because of the range of techniques covered and the mix of artist participants who contribute to the learning experience and discovery of new applications. Regularly scheduled demonstrations are alternated with time for hands-on-experience
