Fundamentals of Encaustic Painting with Kelly Milukas | JAC @ 10 am
June 16 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Day 2 of 2. Join Encaustic painter Kelly Milukas to explore the versatility of Encaustic wax painting and pigments! Applied and tooled with low-heat and high-octane instruments, and brushes from a molten wax palette, it is truly an outstanding journey in art making! This fast-paced workshop will introduce all the necessary skills and knowledge to make Encaustic part of your creative process.
The workshop is open to all, but the main focus will be introductory: covering the basics. It’s perfect for those who are new to the medium, and those looking for an uncomplicated overview of setting up a safe studio and learning current best practices, painting and fusing encaustic layers, and use of mark-making tools. It’s equally beneficial for those with some Encaustics experience who would like a refresher and some independent painting time. Mornings will be dedicated to demonstrations and instructor-led exercises, while afternoons will be a time for students to work on projects of their own and to receive one-on-one and group feedback on content and technique. Participants will be encouraged to work at an individual pace, and can also expect to create a small series of works in a fun and convivial studio environment.
This class includes ALL necessary supplies! Supplies include Hot Plates, Torches, Heat Guns, Tempered Table Covers, Wax Medium, Soy Wax Cleaner, Mark-Making Tools, Paint, Brushes, Wood Boards and Paper Substrates.
