Imagine an art medium that calls you out to play with paint and sculpture–captivating your senses with tactile surfaces, lustrous depth and the fragrant smell of beeswax. Welcome to the ancient medium of encaustic painting!

In this workshop beginning encaustic guests will receive complete basic encaustic painting instruction. This will include support /panel preparation, smooth vs textured surface techniques, and color layering and suspension. Students will also learn to embellish pieces with stenciling, incising and paper mixed media / collage. This exciting workshop always leaves new students craving more days of encaustic painting, so be sure to check out the intermediate class offered the day after this class. It is called Encaustic Mixed Media.
