Basics of Encaustic Painting: Week 4 — July 30-Aug 3, 2013
Taught by Penny Treese

I'm attempting to help fill my week-long encaustic workshop in Banff, Canada, July 29-Aug 2. I'm teaching the class for my colleague, Rae Broyles, so you'll see her name on the site.
http://www.rdc.ab.ca/continuing_education/Pages/CourseInformation.aspx?SUBJ_CODE=ESER&CRSE_NUMB=6180

We will begin our workshop by mixing wax with pigment and material safety and then progress into multiple techniques of layering, texturing and fusing. An exploration of photo encaustics and wax on paper will conclude the session (no photography experience necessary). See why this medium is gaining popularity quickly as you discover the freedom and forgiveness of painting with wax! This encaustic painting workshop is appropriate for beginners as well as more experienced

Today, we introduce you to Penny Treese, an artist who uses a fascinating technique called encaustic painting. Welcome, Penny!

Where did you grow up? If not Atlanta, what brought you here?

I grew up in a rural town called Mahomet (population 2,000) in central Illinois just outside Champagne. I played in the forest in my back yard and the cornfields in my front yard. An ideal childhood for a budding artist with a huge imagination. In 1992, after graduating Cum Laude from Illinois State University with an art and design degree, I moved to Atlanta to start a career as a graphic designer and art director.
