Explore the luscious properties of painting with pigmented beeswax in this Intro to Encaustic Painting workshop with seasoned Chicago painter and printmaker Jeffrey Hirst. Learn multiple creative techniques of encaustic painting, including transparent layering, collage and photo transfer, color mixing, surface manipulation (smooth versus textured), combining oil and wax, and printmaking techniques applicable to encaustic.
Hirst will first provide technical information and demonstrate various techniques. Then students will implement them on their own, using their own individual imagery as they expand their unique aesthetic. Along with answering technical questions, Hirst will also talk with each artist about the work they are creating. During one of the lunch breaks, a powerpoint presentation will be given on artists using encaustic. At the end of the workshop an informal sharing time of work will take place.
