Encaustic for Photography
August 28 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
$90 + $50 material fee.
August 28 from 10am-4pm.
Register through Southampton Arts.
Encaustic is a very old technique using pigments and wax to “paint” and this course marries its otherworldly, ethereal characteristics with photography. Participants are shown how to mount photos on substrates and use a mixed media approach to either convey the personality of their photographic subject matter or simply play with aesthetic values. Instructor Amelia Kraemer has a joyful, contemporary approach to the medium driven by her love of paper ephemera and the ability of encaustic to unify all of your creative components.
*Note: Students must print their own photographs and purchase birch panels of an appropriate size to mount them on. Maxium size of panels should be 11″ x 14″. Bring two photos printed on watercolour or rag paper and two on regular printer paper. Photos printed on standard photography paper will NOT work.
