Tatana Kellner & Cynthia Winika
July 22-26, 2013


Join WSW in collaboration with R&F Handmade Paints as we work with two of the most fluid art media. During the first two and a half days of this class, participants will work with Tatana in the WSW intaglio studio. Emphasizing a quick and free working pace, she will cover a wide range of monoprint methods such as Xerox transfer, chine colle and trace monoprint. Emphasis will be on creating fragments or elements to be further developed during the encaustic half of the class.

After lunch on Wednesday we will gather up our monoprints, say goodbye to WSW, and head over to R&F Handmade Paints to work with Cynthia. A comprehensive introduction to the encaustic painting technique will quickly bring even beginners up to speed. Then we will learn how to develop our printed elements further with encaustic. We will explore layering, collaging, attaching, laminating, marking and other exciting ways to create new mixed-media works combining prints and encaustic.
