Here’s your second chance to join last year’s hit encaustics beginners course! Or take it again for another session with all supplies/tools provided and the opportunity for all-new experimental outcomes.
Learn the ancient art of encaustic painting, an art of melting waxes of all colors and experimenting with wax’s unlimited textures. You will explore several techniques using pigmented wax and a blow torch to fuse luscious layers to birch panels. Safety and specialty equipment will be covered as you are guided, step-by-step, in creating a luminous encaustic work of art, ready to adorn your walls. Materials provided, minus the Material fee of one 8×11 birch panel (available for purchase on day of class for $12.)
