CROSSING DIMENSIONS WITH TEXTURAL WAX @ TRURO CENTER FOR THE ARTS


  • Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill 10 Meetinghouse Rd. Truro, Massachusetts 02666 United States (map)

One of the most exciting qualities of encaustic is its ability it gives artists to achieve a constructed surface beyond the capacity of other painting media. As a material wax crosses between 2D and 3D, providing unique opportunities to combine color texture and dimensionality. In this class, participants will explore a variety of materials that can enhance the textural and sculptural attributes. We work with accessible materials like plaster, joint compound and cardboard to create a range of relief surfaces. Fabrics like burlap and cotton batting can take on more structural characteristics once waxed. Impasto is a great material for building up accretion. With each surface special attention will be given to working temperature, fusing techniques and finishing methods.
