Description

Be free to express your creative side using one of the oldest mediums, painting with molten filtered and pigmented beeswax, in this exciting Semi-Private Intro to Encaustic Painting workshop. Only 2 lucky students per workshop. Make this an extra fun experience; treat yourself and register with a friend!

The earliest applications of encaustic wax paint was done by the artists of Ancient Greece- hence, where the Greek word "enkaustikos" meaning "to burn in" originated.

In this workshop you will have the opportunity to create your own unique artwork (about 3 pieces) that you will feel proud to hang on your wall or gift to someone special.

You will learn to make your own encaustic paint, how to set up your own home studio, and tips and techniques on how to use this highly versatile medium. You will have the option of creating art using just the medium as paint, or creating mixed media art with the medium as a binder.

Tuition: $250 ($200 per person plus $50 for supplies)

Includes 5 hours of instruction plus 1 hour lunch and refreshments.

All materials and supplies are provided.

Personal protective equipment will be provided (mask, gloves, apron).

Maximum 2 people per workshop to ensure 1-on-1 instruction.

A handout with tips and techniques covered and materials list will be supplied at the end of the workshop.
