Kandy Lozano Encaustic Intensive

Kandy Lozano Encaustic Intensive


Two days…intimate, immersive, intense. Experience is preferred as we will be moving at an aggressive pace. Be prepared to work hard, pushing through your comfort zone. This workshop will be held in Kandy's Malibu studio, just steps away from the Pacific ocean.

Encaustic is a beeswax-based medium developed by the Greeks over 2,000 years ago. The Greek word enkaustikos means "to burn in." Wax layers are fused with heat to bond them together. In the 20th century, encaustic reemerged as a medium of choice by such iconic painters as Jasper Johns and Tony Scherman, to name just two of many.Today encaustic  works are ever evolving and becoming more popular and in demand than ever.

This workshop is limited to no more than 6 participants.

Kandy will guide you through an array of methods for creating your own unique style in a medium that is wide open to interpretation. You'll learn techniques not commonly taught elsewhere.

Kandy's studio is close to the beach, beautiful hiking trails and cliffs and some amazing beauty for those who want to take in some inspiration before or after the workshop.

Saturday night there will be the option to stay for dinner and enjoy some camaraderie with our group at one of Malibu's local spots. Sunday we will end the last day of the workshop with a wine and cheese gathering before saying our goodbyes…until next time!

Limited to six participants to ensure individual attention. 

The workshop will go from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Kandy Lozano is an inspiring artist and, in equal measure, an inspiring instructor. She is knowledgeable, patient, and generous, openly sharing her techniques and resources in intimate, hands-on, no-holds-barred workshops. A great opportunity to learn from a master!

In her own words:

"Wax has surprising optical depth, so the history of the work is particularly visible. The discrete layers of wax are fused with heat to create an integrated and archival surface and through this process I direct the 'geology' of the painting. It's always a bit of a surprise when the heat hits the wax. I've learned to control the medium, but the subtleties of temperature, of specific pigment in response to the heat, of the distance the torch is from the surface—all affect the work differently. There is a delicacy and mystery to the surface, and yet it's a material that stands up to scraping and to heat while providing the inspiration. There is an underlying sense of structure that I maneuver and manipulate throughout my work. These conditions encourage me to take chances, to push the work. My passion and vision is expressed when acquired techniques and knowledge of the medium allow me to embrace the accident. "
