THURSDAY EVENING-SUNDAY MORNING, MAY 7-10, 2020*

Port Townsend School of the Arts invites artists to gain skills in encaustic painting with Seattle artist Willow Bader. Encaustic is an ancient style of painting that uses a mixture of hot beeswax, resin and pigment to create works that have dimension and vibrant color.

“I really take pleasure in sharing what I know,” Bader said of her passion for teaching. “It’s especially rewarding to watch students take on new concepts and run with them. Most people do not know it’s even possible to paint with encaustic. I like to open their eyes.”

The cost of the workshop is $650, which includes a group dinner on Thursday evening and a group breakfast on Sunday morning. The cost does not include housing or other meals.

Encaustic participants can expect about 15 hours total of instruction over the course of three days and will take home one work on panel and two on paper. Artists do not need to bring their own supplies, but they will need to bring printed reference materials (supplied once participation is confirmed). Class size is limited to 16 artists aged 18 or older. Bader recommends students arrive with some drawing and painting experience. Even those with advanced encaustic skills will gain new knowledge from the one-on-one instruction Bader will provide.
