Ticket Info: https://reg130.imperisoft.com/DurhamArts/Search/Registration.aspx Learn the fundamentals of Encaustic painting and collaging with hot wax in this 2 day Weekend Workshop! Encaustic is an intoxicating beeswax-based medium that smells like honey and falls somewhere between painting and sculpture. This affordable weekend workshop includes 2 ready-to-hang canvases and unlimited encaustic medium. You can choose to attend both days or one day. Demonstrations will be held at the beginning of each workshop day. You'll learn painting, collage, translucent layering, surface texturing, sgraffito carving and more. You'll explore layer-building techniques using different fusing tools to create unique surfaces. At the end of the workshop, you'll have 2 completed pieces of art. We'll discuss proper care and cleaning of encaustic art for archival purposes. You will learn safety procedures, ventilation and proper care for art pieces and tools. And you'll get the opportunity to interact with other students and their ideas, as we all learn from one another. A $40 Provided Materials fee is due at the beginning of the workshop (check or cash). The suggested materials for this workshop are available at a 20% discount through a local Durham art supply store. More information will be sent to you as the workshop date approaches. Please check the DAC website for the suggested materials list. This workshop can be either a two-day or one-day workshop. The dates for one-day or two-day workshops are in October, November, and December. The September workshop is two-day only.
