July Day Classes

The Heated Palette: Introduction to Encaustic Painting

This four session class provides an in-depth study of the ancient medium of heated pigmented beeswax and is designed for artists that want to incorporate encaustic technique into their own art making practice. Learn the fundamental safety issues, unique tools, and necessary equipment for studio set up, as well as various materials, supports, grounds, and beginning guidelines for painting with a molten medium. Discover alternative ways to draw and paint and add dimension to your work using solvent-free techniques that include brushing, layering, fusing, inlay, incising, collage, and image/drawing transfers. This introductory class will examine essential historical examples as well as contemporary work being exhibited today. Above all, have fun in this highly creative and experimental environment. No prior experience in encaustic is necessary.
