Spend the afternoon learning the basics of encaustic painting and how to collage using encaustic (wax) instead of glue. You will learn how to:

You will learn how to:

  • Prepare your surface
  • Fuse encaustic
  • Mix & Layer Color
  • Work with Stencils
  • Layer photographs & papers
  • Image transfer
  • Create surface texture
  • Achieve a high-gloss finish

The goal of this workshop is to become comfortable with encaustic painting and collage and finish 1-2 artworks. The workshop includes all wax and encaustic media and two 8 x 8 inch wood panels. If you have always wanted to try encaustic this introduction is a great way to get started! No experience is necessary for this class, all you need is the desire to learn something new and have fun.

If you would like to bring your own photographs, magazines and papers to class please do so but know I’ll have everything you need to create work!

NOTE: If you’ve taken a mixed media class from me before this is a perfect opportunity for you to jump right in and make some work. I’ll have all the supplies ready, you can simply focus on continuing your exploration with encaustic.
