JUL 13 - 10am to 3pm | Encaustic Painting & Mixed Media Lab with Karen Eide

Encaustic Painting & Mixed Media Lab

Encaustic painting is an ancient process that dates back to 5th-century BC. Pigmented beeswax is heated on a griddle and applied to rigid panels with brushes. The results yield luminous, richly layered work that has its own unique character.

Students will learn classic encaustic painting techniques and explore how to combine them with contemporary processes, such as surface embellishment, image transfer, incising, collaging, and creating marks and images with oil paint, pastels, mar kers, and inks.
