20 years ago Ezshwan discovered the ancient medium of encaustic. She became excited about the sensuality and diversity of the technique and wants to share all her knowledge and experience with you. She has taught this technique for 14 years in San Miguel de Allende.
If you are a beginner or advanced painter in encaustic or other mediums and want to take your creativity to another level and express yourself in a more meaningful way, Ezshwan can take you there. She is offering encaustic workshops in her private studio, where every tool and material is available.
Ezshwan will start each day with a demo that can show you how to use mark marking, stenciling and oil glazes, and more, not just basic application of the hot wax. You will learn how to apply and fuse collaged layers, and discover the magic of creating with a gas torch. (If you really are timid about fire, there are heat guns available).
Learn how to use transparency to allow softening and pushing back strong colors. You will have up to 5 boards to work on so you can try different techniques. Everything is supplied.
No experience is necessary. Ezshwan will work with beginners and developing artists alike. Included in the workshops is the history of encaustic, safety in the studio, how to make your own paint and the basic technique of encaustic painting.
All classes are 10 am to 4 pm, with a break for lunch and conversation.
