Encaustic, the most versatile medium for painting, is heated beeswax and is excellent for creating translucent layers. In this workshop students will explore the properties of encaustic where varying temperatures create unique effects. You will use rubber stencils, styluses, and botanical materials in combination to create your unique work. The class will include demonstrations followed by studio time to experiment and combine various materials. Participants will leave with deeper understanding of the properties of encaustic and how to move your work to the next level. Open to all skill levels.
