Take a first step into the world of encaustic painting with this 3-hour in studio class where you'll learn how to safely paint with a molten combination of beeswax, damar resin, and powdered pigments. You’ll mix colors, build textures, fuse with a heat gun and use various tools for scraping and incising. Since there are only two students per class, you will have as much individual instruction as you like. At the end of the class you will leave with a guide board of textures, an archival 8”x 8” painting that you created and the skills to make more! All materials are included: high quality wood panels that are responsibly sourced from sustainable forests, pharmaceutical grade filtered beeswax along with powdered pigments and pre-made encaustic paints that you can purchase locally. This class doesn't require any artistic skill. All you need is a desire to be creative and an appreciation for textured art.
