Mixed Media Encaustic: Texture & Layers

Class Level: Novice

This class is now FULL, please give us a call at #845.331.3112 if you would like to be added to the wait-list.

A lush, textured surface adds complexity, substance and reference to time. Because of the inherent properties of wax, the textural and layering possibilities of encaustic far surpass that of any other painting medium. This workshop explores the myriad methods in which to create, add, embed and manipulate surface texture as well as more experimental and lesser known methods. Methods and materials covered in this workshop include the use of Tyvek and polyester, parchment paper decals for creating textured pattern, plaster and paper clay. Also covered is the use of transparent papers such as trace and Duralar paired with paint, water based crayons and pencils and the safe incorporation of these materials into an encaustic painting. A slide discussion regarding the conceptual use of layers in contemporary art is offered as well as an individual consultation for each student with the instructor. This class is ideal for the novice student, looking to expand their foundation.

Exploring Visual Language

Class Level: Intermediate-Advanced.

This workshop is FULL, please give us a call at 845.331.3112 if you would like to be added to the wait-list.

In this workshop participants use R&F Pigment Sticks to create layered, expressive, richly surfaced paintings. We will be experimenting with a wide range of materials including: oil paint, cold wax, graphite, ink, and pan pastels. R&F Pigment Sticks allow the artist to draw or paint onto a surface with freedom and directness. In class Lisa highlights a variety of techniques, tools and exercises are used to explore personal imagery abstract as well as representational. Students will be encouraged to use alternatives to brushes for their mark making. Layering, excavating, edge, line, texture, mark making, color and the concept of “editing” will be addressed.  Working on multiple panels in a series liberates the creative spirit so that a personal language and vision can develop. Individual attention is given to each student, the beginner as well as the professional will get insightful feedback. Group discussions of contemporary art, professional and career support accompany this class. Click the title above to read more.
