About this Class:

Introduction to Encaustic • DPSS171W19

Workshop • Sun 10am-3pm • Jan 29-Feb 5 • 2 sessions • $80 + $18 materials fee paid to the instructor • Room 203

In this two-day workshop, you will be introduced to the basics of encaustic wax painting with demonstrations of exciting methods for image transfer, drawing and mark making. The class is suitable for new and experienced encaustic artists. 

Honolulu artist Sandy Simonian has expertise in jewelry and fashion design.

While visiting the Venice Biennial, she was seduced by an encaustic painting she saw—the beautiful translucency, layering and textures of the medium of bee’s wax, resin and pigment spoke to her and sparked her desire to learn this medium. Sandy immersed herself in “everything encaustic,” learning advanced techniques in classes with prominent artists working in the medium. Sandy enjoys creating curious and mysterious surfaces with depth of line and color and is always exploring new possibilities. Sandy draws inspiration from anatomy, science and nature. She is influenced by her photographic images of her exotic travels to distant lands.
