Description

Immerse yourself in the world of art through the upcoming Encaustic Painting Workshop at Artway Studio. This unique 2-day intensive workshop is designed to enhance your understanding and practice of encaustic painting and monotype printmaking techniques.

What is Encaustic Painting?

Encaustic painting, derived from the Greek word “ἐγκαυστικός,” meaning "burning in," is a captivating painting technique that utilizes heated beeswax, colored pigments, and oil paint. By applying molten medium to a surface, artists can achieve a distinctive effect that adds depth and richness to their artwork.

Monotype printmaking is a versatile process where artists create prints by drawing or painting on a smooth, non-absorbent surface. The image is then transferred onto paper by hand pressing. This technique offers endless creative possibilities and can be repeated by cleaning and re-inking the surface.

Who is this Workshop For?

This workshop is suitable for artists of all levels who wish to explore the exclusive and classic methods of creating art, including encaustic painting and monotype printmaking.

During the workshop, you will:

  • Explore various monotype printmaking techniques using acrylic paint of different viscosities.
  • Learn wax techniques to paint with beeswax and create mono-prints.
  • Experiment with photo transfer and collage techniques using bonding elements such as Matte or Gel Medium.
  • Discover texture mixing techniques by incorporating ground with texture into your artwork.
