In this three day workshop you will be introduced to the art of encaustic painting, or painting with wax. The workshop will address heating, fusing and manipulating wax, as well as how to incorporate papers and add image transfers. You will receive two 2-inch thick wooden panels and will take home at least 2 completed works of encaustic art. The class is open to all, with no prior experience in artmaking required. All materials will be supplied but students are encouraged to bring their own papers, photos and additional collage materials.
