This fast paced hands-on workshop will investigate exploratory techniques and approaches in Encaustic Portraiture and Figurative art (can also be applied to abstracting the figure). We will focus on the creation of rich and expressive surface designs and original pieces done with a combination of encaustic painting and mixed media techniques. Throughout the workshop, some different demonstrations will be done, providing an extensive array of visually-stimulating possibilities for artists to explore. Both encaustic and mixed-media techniques will be covered, including creating alternative working grounds, using a wide variety of tools, altering the painting surface in imaginative ways, and utilising original and exciting mixed-media techniques to create stunning effects. To support artists in their own creative path, topics on feeding and embracing the creative spirit, developing personal content through daily stream of consciousness journaling, adopting a multidisciplinary mindset and creating strong concepts in your art will also be discussed.
