Co-hosted with R&F Handmade Paints, in this three day workshop students will learn to combine photographic imagery with encaustic painting techniques to create unique new works that have the shared aesthetic of two visually powerful media. This class is ideal for seasoned photographers who would like to explore wax as an alternative means for creating collaged and layered work with a look that is naturally luminous and translucent. Participants will become familiar with fundamental techniques necessary to work successfully with encaustic. We will also introduce ideal papers and methods for printing images for a look that blends seamlessly between layers. The first day will be held at CPW, the second and third day will be held at R&F Handmade Paints in Kingston, NY.
