For Immediate Release:
UW-Green Bay offering encaustic painting classGREEN BAY-Experienced and novice artists can learn new painting techniques at the "Reveal/Conceal: Process and Content in Encaustic Painting" summer course offered at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
Prof. Kristy Deetz will teach the course on the UW-Green Bay campus Aug. 4-8.
The class is designed for artists and art educators at all levels with at least some painting experience.
Encaustic techniques use pigment with warm wax to create a textural affect on a number of surfaces. The surfaces and colors of encaustic painting have the advantage of repelling moisture, not yellowing and responding to continual reworking. Encaustic painting lends itself to images that are embedded within multiple layers of wax, Deetz said.
Participants will apply encaustic to various surfaces and learn a full range of techniques.
Specific projects will explore the metaphorical possibilities of the encaustic medium as it reveals and conceals image and content.
Fees for the program are $395 for noncredit instruction, $496.60 for two undergraduate credits or $798.60 for two graduate credits.
Enrollment is limited to 12 students. Registration is due before July 14.
