Mixed Media Encaustics

Discover the wonderful opportunities mixed media encaustic has to offer. This 2,000 year old process uses refined white beeswax and damar crystals melted together to form a strong archival compound that can be used to fuse and transfer images to its surface. You’ll be amazed by its limitless flexibility and creative potentials using photography and mixed media. This class will focus on creative exploration and innovative mixed media techniques using encaustic medium and paints; image transfer techniques; plaster and joint compounds; sprayed stencils and masks; oil rubs and stains; incising; and much more!

Push your encaustic art up to the next level with this upbeat, technique-rich class. Relax and have fun. The class is suitable for all experience levels.

Classes run from 9 – 4 pm each day. Studios are open after hours.
