This summer, in conjunction with the exhibition Thinking Outside the Frame, several members of the California Society of Printmakers will offer workshops at New Museum Los Gatos. CSP member Evelyn Klein will offer a workshop on encaustic painting and printmaking on Saturday and Sunday July 21 and 22nd. Klein is a teaching artist and printmaker in Carmel, California.
In this workshop, participants will make original prints using encaustics or ‘wax paint’ combined with mixed media. Students will learn to paint with non-toxic wax pigments on a hot surface to create original prints. This process will be repeated to build up layers, depth and transparency. Students will be shown how to add layers of prints, drawings, and photographs to wood panel, canvas, and paper surfaces. Students will further develop their work by incorporating other materials on top of the existing layers, such as cold wax, oil pastels, and oil glazes. While exploring the intrinsic nature of the materials, their behaviors, and properties, students will be able to manipulate and combine these techniques in various media.
Try something new! This fun exploratory workshop is perfect for artists of all abilities.
