Come delve into the versatility of painting with hot pigmented beeswax taught by Shelley Jean. This ancient technique has become increasingly popular with modern artists. It’s a process that invites experimentation and you’ll be inspired to do more!
Participants will learn about the history of encaustic, safety, surfaces, and fusing. We will explore a variety of techniques including incising, image transfers, pigment sticks, mark-making, collage, mono-printing, and incorporating photos. All supplies are included but students are welcome to bring their own papers, photos, and mixed media ephemera. Students will leave with multiple pieces of art.
