For those of you who may not be familiar with the medium of Encaustic….it is an ancient art of painting with molten beeswax and combining it with pigments. The results are multi-dimensional, lustrous, mysterious and translucent. In this workshop, you will be introduced to the basic methods of handling, layering, and manipulating the beeswax, as well as exploring the endless possibilities it invites. Possibilities such as including mixed media, collage, image transfers and found objects. What each student creates in this workshop is only limited to their own imagination and how far they would like to explore. A follow up “Encaustic 1” will soon follow the intro to further broaden each students’ skills .
