Explore this beautiful ancient art form of painting with hot (melted) wax, the creative possibilities are endless. Encaustic is a versatile medium that allows the artist to build painterly surfaces very quickly. Wax layers can be built up and carved into to create complex surfaces, making it the perfect medium for embedding collage elements.

Learn the basics, from an introduction to the types of surfaces that are appropriate to paint on, to hands-on instruction in fusing, preparing a smooth or textured surface, incising, mark-making, embedding paper or other materials, image transfers and more. Bring your own panels, all other materials provided.

This class is open to all levels of experience, with many instructional demos and plenty of studio time to work on your own.

Saturday + Sunday   10 am – 3 pm
