Enrollment limited to 12 students

In this hands-on workshop, students will explore the luminous beauty and versatility of encaustic art— painting with molten, pigmented beeswax. This ancient art form has evolved into one of the most versatile mediums available to contemporary artists and offers many exciting, creative possibilities!

The workshop will focus on encaustic painting basics, as well as how to easily and inexpensively incorporate encaustic into a regular studio practice.  Equipment and tools, encaustic paint recipes, painting supports and more will be discussed.  Students will learn how to create image, texture and line using a variety of techniques and how to embed collage elements, found objects and image transfers within translucent layers of wax.  No matter your current medium or genre, encaustic has much to offer.  Beginners welcome as are prior workshop registrants. Ample time for hands-on work will be provided.

Deborah Winiarski has been teaching encaustic workshops at The Art Students League of New York since 2009.  Her encaustic work has been exhibited at venues across the United States including Denise Bibro Fine Art and Kouros Gallery, both in New York City, and, most recently, at Heather James Fine Art, Palm Desert, CA, and Jackson, WY.  Her most recent solo exhibition took place at the Narthex Gallery at Saint Peter’s Church, New York City, in 2009.
