Encaustic Painting Weekend with Marianne Gibson & Gail Streeter
Sorry, this class has already taken place!
Check back in February 2019 to see if it will be offered next year.
Create beautiful paintings by applying a mix of beeswax, tree resin, and oil paint to wood. Day one will cover introduction to the medium, including history, safety and fusing the encaustic to wood boards. Day two will cover more intermediate topics including making the medium, experimenting with collage, creating different textures and the challenge of making a smooth surface for photo transfers. Both days have room for play, by allowing you time to test the new techniques you have learned! You’ll find this ancient medium of encaustic to be one of the most versatile and fun art forms out there! No experience necessary!
