Course Description

Painters have long been enticed by encaustic, an ancient process that employs hot pigmented beeswax wax to add color to a piece of art. Recently, photographers have also begun using encaustic techniques to add extra dimensions to their work. Over five days, Jill Skupin Burkholder introduces you to a spectrum of possibilities for enhancing photographic images with this time-honored process.

We begin the encaustic process with detailed, high-contrast digital images that can be layered with each other at the project's start, or with wax at different stages throughout. Participants then practice printing these rich, textured images onto inkjet paper, handmade paper, and cotton fabric. We also spend time photographing new images and developing workflow strategies tailored to individuals' needs.

In addition, Jill examines the role of printed material as an art object, while participants acquire hands-on experience with several basic ways of creating art books. From scrolls and accordion structures to pamphlet stitching and other 3D methods, every technique is well suited to the commingling of wax and paper, and all offer unique contributions to an artist's vision.

Join Jill and discover new avenues of artistic expression as you combine photography and bookmaking with the seductive medium of encaustic.`
