POST CONFERENCE WORKSHOP
@ Southwest School of Art
Digital Art; Photography and Encaustic Painting- Sept 10th - $85
1 Day Mon; 9-4pm $85 (Material fee $15)
Digital photography allows us to capture our world, and then, using editing software we can reshape it to fit our idea and intent. Adding wax to these digitally altered prints brings the work back into the studio and the physical process of mark making and painting. In this workshop you learn processes for combining your own digital images into layered collages and then using those prints to create encaustic art. The processes that will be covered include: digital manipulation of imagery, layers and collage, encaustic transfer. Note: No wax processes will be used in the digital studio.
