ClassGraphic

Learn the basics of encaustic painting using natural, fragrant beeswax, rich pigments, and a mix of other interesting materials. Explore seemingly endless variations of color, line, shape and texture. Applying and layering encaustic medium is extremely versatile and easy to manipulate, allowing for a broad array of inventive experimentations and alterations. Your instructor will present an informational slide show to familiarize students with options for working in encaustic, and help you understand the supplies, tools, and materials you will be using.

Students will learn several encaustic processes through demos and hands-on experimentation. Starting with the basics of how to safely work with the materials and equipment, we will cover options for preparing interesting support surfaces, techniques for fusing, coloring, layering and texturing wax, and how to add paints, oil pastels, stencils, interesting papers, text, or images into the mix.

No painting experience necessary – all are welcome to explore the wonder of encaustics no matter what media you normally work in!
