Last quarter, artist Deborah Kapoor began teaching our classes in the use of encaustic, or pigmented wax, in markmaking and printmaking. This quarter, she will teach two courses on color: Color Theory, and Encaustic and Color. In Color Theory, students will develop an eye for color and the ability to create complex, compelling color relationships in their work. In Encaustic and Color, students will learn how to achieve the perfect color and depth with encaustic.
Deborah will also teach another new encaustic course, Encaustic Sculpture. In this course, students will practice applying and heating encaustic on a simple sculptural form made of wire and plaster bandage.
“Working with encaustic has transformed my art-making process and opened wide the doors of my creativity. I am excited about the opportunity to share what I’ve learned about using this incredible material by teaching at Bellevue College Continuing Ed,” said Deborah, who will be a key instructor in our new Encaustic Art Certificate Program launching in 2014.
In addition to her encaustic courses, Deborah will also teach another new course: Found Object & Assemblage. In this course, students will investigate how to work with found objects in 2D and 3D formats and learn how to incorporate mixed media to make coherent art works.
Deborah Kapoor earned a BFA in photography from the University of North Texas and an MFA in painting and drawing from the University of Delaware. For more information on her courses, see the Painting and Sculpture headings in the drop-down menu under Art & Design Classes.
