Encaustic painting is using melted & pigmented beeswax to create exciting, luminous paintings. If you have ever been curious about encaustics, this class will show you how to begin in a cost-effective, safe, & playful manner. The two-day workshop will cover a brief history of this ancient medium, the basic equipment needed, how to set up your work space, make your own medium, mix your own colors, & give you a chance to explore how encaustics can embrace the other mediums & materials that inform your creative process.  Be prepared to make way for experimentation & park the inner critic at the door.
