Printmaking + Encaustic Fusion Intensive

with Julia Jensen and Kim Colligan     $205.

Sat. + Sun. June 28 + 29

10 am - 3 pm     

Create monotypes using non-toxic Akua printmaking inks, R&F pigment sticks, Caran d’Ache, and various other media. We will create layers using texture, plant material, and multiple plates. Also you can experiment with letter press to incorporate type into your prints. On the second day we will use the prints created to make encaustic, multi media collage pieces. Encaustic is a versatile wax based medium that allows the artist to build painterly surfaces very quickly. Wax layers can be built up or carved into in order to create complex surfaces, making it the perfect medium for embedding collage elements
