1-Day Workshop

Sunday, November 1 | 1-5 p.m.

Learn the art of encaustic painting. Heat is used to melt the encaustic and can cause many beautiful and exciting organic textures - this workshop will teach the basics of encaustic layering, fusing, combining pigments and wax and creating incredible textures. Teaching Artist Leah Macdonald will demonstrate prepping the panel, gluing a collage and painting with encaustics. Students will experiment using addition and subtraction of wax, pigments and heat to create a unique alchemy on the panel.
