Encaustic: Paint and Collage in Wax


Visual design and painting techniques such as color, composition, and form are taught through the medium of encaustic painting. Encaustic painting uses hot wax and is applied in layers to create landscapes, portraits, or abstract images. Students can paint and collage – combining papers, fabric, photographs, leaves and found objects – to make original and expressive work. Encaustic painting is completely unique, producing depth and luminosity that other mediums cannot achieve. Using the skills learned in this course, students enhance their ability to create imaginative work and to further tap into their creative abilities.
