Intro to Encaustics


For students of all levels who want to explore the ancient Greek art of painting with beeswax. Participants will learn the fundamentals of working with this medium – how to melt, mix and apply wax to create smooth and textured surfaces. We will also explore techniques including layering, line making, incorporating photographs and other collage effects for creating texture. It is a wonderful stand-alone medium or can be easily combined with a variety of mixed media.
