Warm up this Winter by taking an Encaustic Painting Class using natural beeswax as your painting medium.
Instructor: Graham Curry
Saturdays & Sundays: February 7&8th, March 7&8th
Graham brings her years of experience and natural teaching abilities to Artisans-at-Work once more! Enjoy the amazing selection of materials she brings for this Mixed Media Encaustic Painting Class – all materials are included (amber and white beeswax, oil paints, wood panels, papers, collage materials, Xerox images for transfers, tools, brushes and more).
Participants will explore painting with natural beeswax and pigments. Learn how to make timeless encaustic wax art pieces with techniques like sgraffito, painting, collage and image transfers.
Classes are limited to small sizes so students will enjoy one-on-one instruction and individual help throughout the workshop. For beginners and continuing students.
This is a great class for beginners to intermediate, and excellent for beginners to oils! Julie is a wonderful teacher of technical painting skills! Even if you already paint, you will find her series of lessons encouraging and interesting.
Painting in a group is inspiring, and so motivating.
