Encaustic Workshop

Encaustic Painting – With Artist Stacy Gresell

Wanna play with fire? 🔥
Let’s FIRE it up with artist Stacy Gresell & learn encaustic painting!

Come join us for introductory class where you can learn to paint with melted beeswax firing every layer with a torch! Encaustic painting is one of the world’s most ancient artistic mediums. It’s name- “enkaustikos” literally means to burn in.

This workshop is for beginners & is open to all skill levels. No art experience necessary

We will cover materials: substrates, paint & tools, as well a basic application technique: base layer, cold wax application & blended.

We will also learn some advanced techniques as well including incorporation of images (burnished and embedded), reductions, and various forms of encaustic intarsia.

Cost is $120 per person plus $30 for supplies. You will leave with your practice board and a finished painting (both will be 8×8) as well as some beginner tools.

Participants should bring a notebook for sketches & notes, images they want to work with (those from a printer should be laser not ink jet) and a soup spoon.

*we are currently planning Encaustic Painting – PART TWO!! And “Encaustic- Landscapes” so keep watching 🎨
