Encaustic painting is the process of painting with hot pigmented beeswax. This technique is ancient but has become increasingly popular with modern artists of today. Come delve into the versatility of this fascinating medium that invites you to experiment! Participants will learn about encaustic history, safety, surfaces, and fusing. In this comprehensive class we will be exploring a variety of techniques such as incising, image transfers, pigment sticks, mark-making, collage, mono-printing, and incorporating photos. All supplies are included in the materials fee, but students are welcome to bring their own papers, photos, tools, and mixed media ephemera. Students will leave with multiple pieces of art utilizing a variety of techniques that we will be experimenting with. We will break for lunch, bring your own (refrigerator and microwave available) or visit any of the several local restaurants nearby.
