ENCAUSTIC WORKSHOPS

Encaustic, or hot wax, is made of beeswax, pigment and resin. Egyptians were the first to utilize this art form over two thousand years ago.  Brought back into the modern art world by artists such as Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns, encaustic is an important part of the contemporary art world while still being a unique media.  These workshops are suited for beginner and intermediate level artists, and will help participants understand all they need to know about encaustic so they can return to their studios ready to create.
