Six Tuesday eves, Starting April 16 at The Visual arts Center, Richmond, VA


Beginners and those who want a refresher.


Encaustic is a luminous medium that is made up of molten beeswax, pigment and resin. It can be smooth and shiny, textured and three-dimensional all on the same painting. You will explore melting and fusing, line and edge, collage and working with photos and texture. It is ideal for working abstractly or in a more representational style. Encaustic, once an ancient process, is now updated with new tools and equipment. You will be given a small wooden panels (4x5”) for each of the techniques demonstrated, and you can bring your own 9x12 inch boards for larger work. Equipment, paint, medium, brushes and tools will be provided by the instructor. This is a solvent free medium.

No prior encaustic experience necessary.
