Experience the beautiful art of painting with wax! Join Visiting Artist Jane Cornish Smith in this special one-day workshop that covers the basics and beyond of creating with this ancient medium. Participants will learn a variety of techniques, including fusing, layering, creating texture through reductive and additive methods, incising, stenciling, and more! The history of encaustic, a working knowledge of materials, and safety considerations will be covered, as well as color, concept, and composition. Demonstration, lecture, one-to-one guidance, and individual student painting time will yield one-of-a-kind luminous works of art.
All experience levels welcome. All supplies included.
