Exploring Encaustic 2016

Exploring Encaustic Paintings

After a thoughtful process I have come to the conclusion that some time needs to be taken to refocus on my art and future passions. It is with this decision that I am going to take a break from teaching for a while after the annual Exploring Encaustic series.

The class was originally going to be 5 days all together - that option is still available - but there will be 2 other options for folks who were wanting to get some shorter training in as well.

Different options now available for Exploring Encaustic 2016

There are now 3 options:
Option #1. Taking the full 5 days May 19th to 23rd - as per regular registration. This covers all of the techniques below. Students who select this option receive a goody bag featuring products from R&F Paints, Enkaustikos, PanPastel, Ampersand, Kama Pigments, and a box of starter, expanding or vivid waxes from Encaustic Art. Plus the special bonus from Tweed Creative!! $600*

Option #2. Intro to Encaustic: May 19th & 20th - this class will cover the basics of studio set up, safety, and learning to paint with wax. $240*

Option #3: Deepening Your Practice May 21st to 23rd - this is for students who have taken classes before and understand the basics. We will dive into mixed media techniques and beyond. We will get dimensional with our work, use stencils, and other fun processes. Includes an open studio day. Students who take this class will get a special gift from Tweed Creative. $360*

All supplies included* 

This annual course is perfect for students of all levels. For those who are new to encaustic it is a full immersion into encaustic painting and techniques. For those who are more experienced it is an opportunity to deepen your practice and refresh your skills.

Over the 5 days we will cover:

  • Studio set up and safety
  • Basics of painting and fusing
  • Creating Texture
  • Mixed Media & encaustic
  • Images & encaustic (new version)
  • Studio Day - open time to bring everything together

Where: Shatford Centre / Okanagan School of the Arts 760 Main Street, Penticton, BC

Time: 10:30am to 4:00pm each day. Lunch is at 12:30pm for 45 mins

There are bursary options available for students who live in the South Okanagan. Please contact the Okanagan School of the Arts for more information.
