Encaustic: Painting in Wax

This course is designed to offer you the opportunity to expand your repertoire of mark making by learning the skills and techniques of painting with hot wax. This ancient technique, called encaustic painting, dates back to Roman and Egyptian art and allows the artist to build layers, incise into as well as embed images between layers of wax. Experimentation will be encouraged to help students discover the many possibilities of this versatile medium. Taleen Batalian has a BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She has been involved in fine arts for over fifteen years. She teaches art classes to elementary and middle school students and is also a painting instructor in RISD’s Continuing Education program. Taleen currently manages an independent painting studio and creates and markets artwork through commissions, galleries and shows throughout the Northeast.
