Encaustic Pen Tool Painting

Saturday, July 16, 2016
9:00AM – 4:00PM

Fee: $72 member: $80 non-member +25 materials fee
REGISTRATION CLOSES JULY 8


Painting with an encaustic pen is a quiet meditation on process and discovery. It favors patience and deliberateness.
What appeals to me is the slow build up of wax, stroke by stroke, layer upon layer, adding colors bit by bit and carefully mixing them directly on the panel.

This method lends itself especially well to working on a small surface. For example, the encaustic painters of Greece, who developed this process, seldom made pictures larger than the average head.
I will provide one small wooden surface, the pen tools, colored beeswax and lots of inspiration for your forays into this popular technique.

Materials:

  • at least two 10x10 inch wooden panels
  • water colors
  • pencils
  • drawing paper
  • tissue paper
  • pen tool optional

Workshop is held in the Larson Gallery with a lunch break.  Class size is limited to 18.  Materials list provided on registration.  To learn more about Larry Calkins, calkinarts.net

Collage materials will be fused to the surface working with an iron, heat gun or a torch.
