COURSES / MASTERCLASSES / WORKSHOPS

Masterclasses are most beneficial for the person who has previous experience in painting, and are at an intermediate or advanced level of artistic ability. Instructors are experts in the subject areas which they teach, and students will be learning content at a high-level. It is the instructor’s qualifications and vast experience in their respective areas which is the main factor that sets these classes apart, and that ultimately will be the main benefit these types of classes offer.

Encaustic Masterclass with OLEG KOULIKOV

Dates & Time:
JULY 21, 2018 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm
JULY 22, 2018 - 12:00am to 3:00pm

During this exciting 2-day masterclass, students will have the opportunity to learn encaustic painting from a master of the technique, Oleg Koulikov. Each student will be guided through the process step by step and a create one-of-a-kind piece to take home.

Encaustic painting is an amazing technique dating back as far as the Byzantine period and beyond. It has been used for everything from religious icons to mummy portraits and has only become more versatile throughout the years. The technique involves heating of beeswax to temperatures at which it may be easily manipulated before mixing pigments into the wax, resulting in an encaustic mixture. This mixture is applied to sufaces as a sort of paint while it is still in a molten state. Once the encaustic painting has begun to cool, the artist is given the unique opportunity to scupt and shape the wax using metal tools and special brushes. Upon drying completely, one may also incorporate other materials onto the surface of the encaustic wax. Beeswax, being a very naturally receptive medium, allows an artist to express his or her individual style to the full extent while giving artwork a luminosity and depth not seen in most other media.
