Encaustic Painting Workshop with Nicki Stewart at the Queenstown Arts Centre.

Join Nicki in for a magical 2 days exploring the exciting and creative possibilities of painting with wax. This ancient art form has evolved into one of the most versatile mediums available to contemporary artists. No matter what your current medium or genre, encaustic has much to offer for the mixed media artist. You will be introduced to the preparation of grounds and materials used in the encaustic process, exploring the basic techniques of layering, fusing, blending, image transfer, embossing, embedding elements and incorporating mixed media such as paper, fabric, oil paint, ink and pastels as well as a variety of mark making techniques. This course will provide you with all the information and practice you need to start creating your own beautiful works in wax.
