Beginners are welcome in this introductory class taught by Dana Harris Seeger. The art of encaustic painting is millennia old, but the freshness that can be achieved in this medium is truly contemporary. We will be working with hot bee’s wax, damar resin and pigment on an anodized aluminum plate and transferring those images to paper to create one-of-a-kind encaustic prints.

 

Encaustic is a non-toxic medium that provides unparalleled luminosity and depth of color. The resulting prints on paper can be layered onto an existing encaustic painting or displayed on its own. We will use semi-transparent Sumi rice paper to print on, and every color imaginable. Experienced encaustic artist and printmaker Dana Harris Seeger will show students the process from start to finish, including how to mount, frame or incorporate their prints into other artwork. Students will be able to create a series of prints to take home.

I love making connections. When I see a student's face light up after they hear me explain a process, when someone writes to me about how a piece of my artwork has brought back fond memories, or made them realize something they hadn't before, it makes my heart skip a beat. Creating connections between the past and the present, between different artistic mediums, and different learning styles is what I do. I believe that art is a language that can be a lens through which we see the world. I believe it is a vital part of our lives, informs a lot of what we do subconsciously and should be taken more seriously as a viable career in our society.
