The Encaustic Painting Workshop will be a fun chance for participants to receive hands-on instruction on how to make and use Encaustic painting, the ancient medium of the Egyptians. Encaustic painting is a permanent, lovely medium which has seen a resurgence in the last 60 years. The workshop will include materials for that days such as waxes, pigments etc. and hands-on use and manufacturing of this beautiful wax medium.
Stillwater Community Arts is incredibly lucky to have the amazingly talented Ed Nadeau as the Encaustic Painting Workshop instructor for Stillwater Community Arts’ Fall Workshop Day! Ed is a native Maine artist whose paintings depict the land and people of his home state in various incarnations. He graduated from Syracuse University in 1980 with his BFA in painting and from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 1986 with his MFA in painting.
When Ed is not creating his gorgeous, interesting works of art, he is busy teaching 2d-design, painting, and drawing at the University of Maine. Ed’s paintings have been exhibited widely, including the Baltimore Museum of Art, Maryland Art Place, School 33 Art Center, the Park School, the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Whitney Art Works, and the Drawing Center in NYC. Currently Courthouse Gallery Fine Art in Ellsworth, Maine represents his paintings.
