First practiced in Greco-Roman times, encaustic continues its popularity with modern masters such as Jasper Johns because of its flexibility and fluidity. The encaustic method of painting combines the luminescence of watercolor, the rich color and thickness of oils, and the quick-drying benefits of acrylic. The medium can be molded, sculpted, combined with collage materials, and reworked at any time.

In this workshop ideal for all experience levels, learn to capture vibrant pigments using heated beeswax, as well as fusing and carving in wax. Students are encouraged to incorporate their own drawings or prints on paper as well as other collage elements into their encaustic paintings. Safe methods of working, archival materials, and historical and contemporary approaches to the medium are introduced.

Some shared supplies are provided.
