Course Description:
This 6 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.

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. Be inspired in this highly creative and experimental environment.
