Fun and Fearless Faux Encaustic II
Let go and experiment with a variety of mixed media painting and collage techniquesas well as documenting your creative process will be just some of the highlightsyou’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 reducingback and letting go as we create our hearty composition which will mimic encausticwork 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 combinationsand 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/colorcombination and use that to create our final composition that will include moretexture, background layers, text and imagery before we reduce it back down with ourfinal layer of ‘Faux Encaustic’ mixtures. The samples for the class will be abird/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 keepa journal as a form of self discovery during the class and beyond. Learning to letgo, use new products, experiment, and be committed to the creative process are allthat are necessary. No experience required to discover & make friends! **NOTE...this is a RE-Launch of my class from this summer, NOT a NEW class!!
