Encaustic Scape x2 Workshop
Saturday and Sunday, July 14 & 15, 10 am – 3 pm
Explore encaustic painting with instructor and artist Jordan Pearson in this two day workshop. You will learn the safety and working techniques unique to encaustic painting (melted/pigmented beeswax). Jordan’s demos will focus on a specific approach to representational painting in encaustic which involves drawing transfers, colour mixing, scraping, glazing, and carving. Students will also be shown how to build smooth or textural surfaces to suit their encaustic scapes depending on the desired texture and background. Day 1 will be technique and experiment based and day 2 will be focused on a finished painting. This class will involve some drawing, and is open to beginners and those who have already taken a class in encaustic.
Jordan Pearson studied at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy, has a Visual Arts Diploma in painting from Red Deer College and holds a Bachelor of Education in Fine Art from the University of Alberta. She is an artist, educator and beekeeper who practices oil and encaustic painting full time in her Edmonton studio. Jordan’s work focuses on local Canadian wildlife and landscape as she hopes to promote thoughts around respect, concern, action and local conservation. Through teaching and volunteering in several art centres, she is passionate about helping others use art as their creative outlet.
