The Visual Arts Center
Encaustic is a once ancient, luminous medium that is made of molten beeswax, pigment and resin. It can be smooth, shiny and textured as well as three-dimensional all on the same painting: ideal for working abstractly or in a representational style. Explore melting and fusing, line and edge, collage and texture. A small wooden panel for each of the techniques demonstrated will be provided. Bring additional wood panels up to 9x12". The equipment, paint, medium, brushes and tools will be provided. No encaustic experience necessary. For experienced students this is an opportunity to review processes, delve into an idea more deeply or try something new. All materials provided.
