Empower your artistic experience and “paint with fire” in this intermediate to advanced, one day encaustic wax workshop with Penny Treese at Spruill Center for the Arts.

For students who have established a relationship with layering wax, this class will elevate your work to a new level.  Instructor Penny Treese takes participants through a series of new techniques that progress into an open dialogue about the content of paintings. This class delves into what inspires each artist and moves beyond technique to guide individuals through the creation of a successful work of encaustic art.

Experienced encaustic wax painters will enhance their current  methods with exciting new techniques that will aide in developing a consistent body of work. This one-on-one teaching environment allows experienced students to advance to a new level of work.

Techniques to be explored include: Creating pigments-translucent to opaque in a range of hues and tones, scraping layers, accretion texture, oil paint washes, embedding/embossing objects, dripping and oil stick rubs, and creating a glass-like to raised textural surfaces.

Previous encaustic experience is required for this class. This is an intermediate/advanced level workshop. Contact Penny Treese with questions about requirements.

The Materials Kit is $35, payable to the instructor at the workshop. See the supply list for additional items to bring to the class.

Create photo-encaustic paintings using secrets and techniques refined by Penny Treese, a juried Decatur artist.

Form a visual narrative through texture, printing, photo manipulation techniques, layering, reassembly approaches and photo washing. Students might use water, wine, natural pigments, found objects or steel wool to create texture. Guided experimentation with printing on fine art paper such as mulberry, tissue or other translucent papers will be included. Psychological depth of individual pieces will be explored during class. Each student receives a pre-workshop “image planning” session with the instructor prior to class via phone or email to select images for the class.

This is an introductory level class. No experience is necessary to participate. However, it is recommended students consider  “An Intro to Encaustic” workshop as a prerequisite course.

Required materials are included in the $35 supply fee. This covers your “Materials Kit” and may be purchased from the instructor at the time of the workshop.
