Encaustic Printmaking begins as a primer to the encaustic monotype and progresses to an exploration of the more advanced techniques involved in producing repeatable images while printing with wax. This class will expose participants to a wide variety of papers, tools and ideas and engage participants in varied technical process with an emphasis on adapting that process to their own unique visual voice. Students begin by revisiting the basics and variables of the encaustic monotype: heat, paint, paper and pressure. They then build on those basic principles to explore techniques such as additive and subtractive process, trace monotype, stenciling, cold composition and varied advanced techniques that explore how to control line, placement, color, saturation and registration. Students will learn to fine tune and nuance their printed images from start to finish. Participants can expect to create a wide variety of prints during this class encompassing a varied range of technical and intuitive process. There is no supplies list for this class. You will be working with items that can stain clothes. Dress appropriately. Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate
