The Art of Encaustic Painting Workshops

Encaustic painting is the artistic expression of creating with bees wax. These unique paintings are made with translucent layers of colorful melted wax.As light passes through each layer and is reflected up to the surface, the painting is actually illuminated from within. Colorful melted wax moves in a free flowing approach lending itself to a playful sense of freedom. The result is a painting unique that is transparent, with a lush surface that is simultaneously sensual and contemplative.

Students will learn several painting techniques along with a completed encaustic masterpiece ready for display.
