     R&F Encaustic Comprehensive

    April 15-17, 2020
    R&F Handmade Paints
    Kingston, NY

    This 3-day workshop is designed for painters interested in exploring the fundamental elements necessary to create successful encaustic painting. Following a historic overview of encaustic, students will move through a series of guided exercises focusing on studio setup, paint application, and health and safety. With a strong emphasis on approaching wax as a direct painting media, students become familiar and comfortable with brushwork, fusing, and layering. Additional techniques we explore include collage, printmaking, image transfer, and combining oil and wax.

    After each demonstration, participants will have hands-on time with the wax to explore and examine the characteristics that make wax a unique material to work with, such as opacity, temperature, adhesion, and texture. Artists working in any painting or print discipline will find this workshop an exciting opportunity to grow their visual vocabulary with wax. This workshop is ideal for beginner and intermediate level students.

    Registration opens 12/10/19 at www.rfpaints.com
