Finding Form, Encaustic in the Third Dimension

Teaching this summer at Idyllwild Summer Arts in Idyllwild California 
Finding Form, Encaustic in the Third Dimension
By Holly Wilson
June 26 – June 30, 2023

Colored wax on a flat surface is just the beginning! In this workshop, we will look at materials and forms to bring your ideas to life, allowing you to create fascinating structures that leave the two-dimensional plane.

Material is an essential part of our visual language, so you will want to choose the materials you wish to speak with carefully. Along with your ideas, you will bring various materials; these could include wood, cardboard, metal, unglazed fired clay pieces, dried plasterwork, fiber, string, paper, objects from nature, or treasures you have held onto (a complete list of suggestions to follow). You will learn exciting ways to weave these objects into your work.

Experiment with how the materials may be dipped, painted, wired, glued, hammered, but most of all, waxed. You will start by making the encaustic medium to which you will add your pigment. Encaustic is a wax-based paint composed of beeswax, resin, and pigment, which is kept as a hot liquid on a heated palette, and then applied to an absorbent surface. In addition to safety practices, you will learn various techniques, including fusing, using transparencies, glazing, layering, building up texture, line making, carving, image transfer, mold making, and resin application with different surfaces. Returning students will learn new methods and may choose to work on advanced projects if they wish. Each student will finish up to two pieces during the week (using 3D and relief techniques).
