Photo Encaustic: Ethereal Markings and Monochrome October 21st-23rd, 2022 LaGrange Art League 9 am to 4pm each day Limit 5 students
Intermediate level class Supply fee: $50 collected at workshop
Roll of paper towels. These should be Viva brand or shop towels from the hardware store. Hot wax soaks through others too quickly.
Roll of 1” 3M blue painter’s tape. Do not buy the Duck brand, it does not have enough tack.
Jump drive with your images for printing onsite. Landscape and architectural photos work best. Bring a variety to choose from and experiment with. Photos should be sized at 11x14”, 300ppi resolution. We will adjust for final print size during the workshop.
3-4 birch panels to work on. I suggest ordering these from cheapjoes.com or dickblick.com, (specifically the Joe’s Prime Cradled Painting Panels (standard or extra-deep) or Blick has various brands) in various sizes. The maximum size should be 11x14 / 12x12- cradled panels on these please. Consider getting some rectangular and some square boards so you can explore various layouts.
3- or 4-pack of small Ampersand Encausticboards.
Sketchbook and pencil for sketching and note taking
Apron or smock
Roll of baking parchment paper
Small spray bottle for water
Self-healing cutting mat
Papers you may want to collage into the work
