Item details

Fun and Fearless Faux Encaustic II is the next step after my first class, "Fun with Faux Encaustics", digging a little deeper in the process. Either class can stand alone but if you would like to start at the beginning, this would be the second in the faux encaustic series.

Let go and experiment with a variety of mixed media painting and collage techniques as well as documenting your creative process will be just some of the highlights you’ll experience over the course “Fun and Fearless Faux Encaustic II” with Jodi Ohl.

Throughout the class, you will be immersed in building up layers and then reducing back and letting go as we create our hearty composition which will mimic encaustic work without the expense of purchasing encaustic products and tools.

Week 1-3 we will experiment with a variety of background techniques, introducing students toeasy ways to build layers and depth using acrylic paint, tools, pencils, crayons,collage elements. Everyone will be encouraged to try a variety of color combinations and techniques as we develop a style or look that best represents the fearless you!

Moving into the last half of the class we will take our favorite background style/color combination and use that to create our final composition that will include more texture, background layers, text and imagery before we reduce it back down with our final layer of ‘Faux Encaustic’ mixtures. The samples for the class will be a bird/nature composition which the students can recreate or try a subject of your own.

The fearless you can be the one to decide but without doubt, we are going to go “big”and “bold” or go home. Students will also be encouraged to take pictures, and keep a journal as a form of self discovery during the class and beyond. Learning to let go, use new products, experiment, and be committed to the creative process are all that are necessary. No experience required to discover & make friends!
