Painting with Encaustic

Sylvia Benson

Join in on a new endeavor of working with hot beeswax which contains a resin as a hardening agent and pigments of many colors. It is called encaustic, an ancient art form dating back to the Greeks, which was revived by Jasper Johns and has gained popularity since the 90s. This medium is exciting because of its flexibility and versatility. Wax can be moved with a hot air gun, textured with tools, embedded with beautiful paper, and turned into a collage. Step-by-step instruction and individual attention will help you develop your painting in this wonderful medium. $20 material fee covers all materials to make one painting; students who wish to make more can buy extra materials for an additional fee. Classes are limited to 6 students; sign up early!
