Encaustic Painting with a Stylus with Larry Calkins

Saturday & Sunday, August 10th & 11th 11:00am – 4:00pm

Instructor: Larry Calkins

Location: ArtEast Art Center – 95 Front Street North, Issaquah, WA 98027

Painting with an encaustic pen is a quiet meditation on process and discovery. It favors patience and deliberateness. The most appealing aspect of this is the slow build-up of wax, stroke by stroke, layer upon layer, adding colors bit by bit and carefully mixing them directly on the panel. This method lends itself especially well to working on a small surface. For example, the encaustic painters of Greece who developed this process seldom made pictures larger than the average head. Suitable for all levels.

Student Experience Level: All levels

Class fee: $200/member $222/non-member
