Curious about encaustic? This workshop is for you!
Join us for a high-energy, hands-on, two-day encaustic workshop. We will discuss history, safety, how the medium is made, types of wax, prepping substrates, care of encaustic art, and hands-on demonstrations. We will explore a variety of encaustic techniques, including applying and fusing wax, layering translucent color, adding and reducing texture, masking, stencils, mark making, image transfer techniques, and more. Participants will leave with a thorough understanding of the medium and their own encaustic “masterpieces” to take home! All materials provided.
Victoria Eubanks brings thirty years of graphic sensibility and design experience to her art studio. This veteran designer stepped away from clientele and her computer to pursue a more tactile interest in fine art. Victoria primarily paints with encaustic medium, but she is also a printmaker and a photographer. She will combine bit of each in a single piece and wax finds its way to most of of it. Victoria’s abstracts contain intended imperfections— lopsided rounds, scrafittoed lines, uneven repetition, organic shapes, scraping, textures and the occasional recognizable item.
Recent recognition includes a coveted Best of SAM by ASLD, Best in Fine Art award from the Castle Rock Chamber, Featured Artist for the Fine Art Market at the Arvada Center and inclusions in the Best of Colorado Shows. Victoria has twice curated the biannual WAX Stories juried exhibition in Denver. She is a long time member of the MIX Co-op in the Arts District on Santa Fe, and a founding member of EXPAND artists. She has also served on the Board of Directors for Denver’s Art Students League.
