June 20-23, 2023

This workshop is designed for both painters and photographers interested in gaining new skills and pushing the boundaries of their studio practice through the combination of encaustic, collage, and black and white photography. Explore a range of subject matter, paper rusting techniques, and methods for mixing media to create dynamic hybrid artworks. Begin by utilizing various methods of underdrawings to bring in pattern and additional detail to the work, such as wood burning tools, inks, oil paints, and encaustic. Focus is placed on incorporating embedded photo prints on thin papers such as tissue and Japanese papers, as well as image transfers to create final work that is both ethereal and richly detailed in its layers. Individualized feedback is provided
