Event Description

Learn the basics of Encaustic painting and collaging with hot wax! Hot Encaustic wax is an intoxicating medium that smells like honey and falls somewhere between painting and sculpture. This affordable workshop includes 2 10 x 10 x 2" cradled canvases and unlimited encaustic medium. Through guided demonstrations, you’ll explore layer-building techniques using different fusing tools to create unique surfaces. You'll learn collage, image transferring, painting and transparent layering. At the end of the workshop, you’ll have 2 completed pieces of art. We will discuss safety procedures, ventilation and proper care for art pieces and tools. For beginning, intermediate and advanced students. A $40 materials fee is due to instructor at each workshop. Please check DAC website for additional supply list.
