April 2-3, 2016--PRINTING ON ENCAUSTIC with Leslie Giuliani--Saturday and Sunday, 10am-4pm--2-day workshop, limited to 8. Leslie Giuliani, Bear in the Woods, Paper Lithograph and Wax Pencil on Encaustic In this 2-day workshop participants will first work with encaustic, a wax-based paint worked while molten, creating beautiful backgrounds for prints. After participants have created a variety of paintings, they will print using a lithographic method using Xerox or Laser copies or even crayon drawings. The inked image of a paper lithograph can be printed many times until the desired print is achieved, and the painted backgrounds can be easily preserved if any print is at first unsuccessful. After printing, the surface can still be worked into further using a variety of drawing, painting and carving tools. All printing is done without a press. Several other image transfer methods will also be explored. Students need only to bring Xerox or laser images to act as their printing plates. All material will be provided. All Levels.
