Encaustic Painting

Explore encaustic for the first time or expand your skills. The layering of encaustic paint produces luminous and textured surfaces. Experience applying transparent layers, imprinting botanical materials, using transfers, working with stencils and paper. Understanding the properties of encaustic is the first step.

Special Notes

  • Instructor supplies small 4x6in test panels for testing encaustic techniques; students will purchase other necessary panels. All other equipment and materials are provided.
  • Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
