Course Description

A hands-on studio course, this workshop is designed to take students beyond the basics involved in working with encaustic, offering participants a deeper understanding of how to create paintings that suggest depth and dimension. An emphasis will be placed on composition and expressing meaning through an exploration of accumulating marks, drawings, and image transfers at varying levels. Students will have plenty of time to explore and develop their own personal ideas and visual vocabulary on larger or multiple panels.

TUITION: $230 + FEES: $85
CEUs: 1.6
