Learn to paint with wax
The Encaustic Center is a unique facility where instructors Bonny Leibowitz, Deanna Wood, Brett Dyer, Mary Wright, and Susan Sponsler teach the art of painting with wax.
We offer a variety of ways to learn:
*Start out with a 1-day Introductory Beginner Workshop ($100, all materials included). In these Beginner Workshops you will be learning a variety of techniques including how to build layers, fuse, texture, work with grids, stencils, embed objects, incise, transfer, collage and much more along with a working knowledge on how to melt and mix wax, a bit about the history of wax painting, a working knowledge of supplies and how to create your own workspace! All supplies included. Most Fridays and Saturdays 10:00 to 4:00. Please see the schedule page and email for availability email@example.com.
*Once you've taken an introductory / beginner workshop, come for Assisted Workdays for help on your work, delving further into processes and learning techniques such as pours, texture, collage, transfers, painterly effects, monotype, 3-D, and hot tool use with step-by-step instruction ($50 for 3 hours).
