Come join artist, Jacque Minarik to learn about encaustic! Encaustic originates from the Greek word Enkaiein, meaning to burn in, referring to the process of fusing paint and wax. Let’s have fun together learning about this exciting art form. We will create a collage and experiment heating wax, resin, and paint/pigment to create a unique mixed media wax painting. Explore encaustic for the first time or expand your skills. The layering of encaustic paint produces luminous and textured surfaces. Feel free to bring a copied image to add to the layering process for collage or just experiment blending and mixing the wax and pigment to create an abstract piece of art.
What do participants need to bring.
Please bring a copied image to collage if you would like to use your own imagery. Note- copies of photos can be used but a copy on printed computer paper is better than using an original photo printed on photography paper. All other materials are included in the cost of the class.
