Explore creative new dimensions in your photography by learning how to use the alternative process of encaustic to enhance your images. With the picturesque Rocky Mountain town of Snowmass, Colorado, as our backdrop, Clare leads you in developing the necessary skills, aesthetics, and vision for working with hot beeswax and pigments.

We begin by looking at the masters of encaustic, both in photography and painting, as we discuss which images work well with encaustic and which ones don't. In addition to examining methods for adding photographs at different stages of the process, Clare also covers paper selection and use, mounting materials and techniques, encaustic pouring and painting techniques, glazing, scraping, image transfers, stenciling, imbedding objects, and adding texture and color.

First we use sample boards to practice the various techniques. Once you feel comfortable with them and have determined how you want your images to evolve, we venture out into the field to photograph landscapes and events around Snowmass. After each session we take time together to critique and choose images that will be the most compatible with the encaustic process. The remaining time is spent in the studio, where you transform your images into works of art.

Includes tuition and encaustic materials, 6 nights lodging (double occupancy; single available for additional $450) in a condominium with full kitchen, and Welcome and Closing night dinners.
