Join visual artist Candace Law at the War Memorial on Saturday, October 22 from 10 am to 4 pm for an encaustic mixed media workshop sponsored by the Grosse Pointe Artists Association.

This workshop is for any artist who is curious about this versatile medium and wants to explore ways to incorporate it into their own work.

The day will start with a brief review of the basics, priming and painting, then move on to experiment with a couple popular techniques used by artists today.

New to encaustic? This is the perfect time to learn about this medium without investing in the equipment and supplies.

Worked with hot wax before? Use this as a refresher session and bring in any questions or problems you’ve been having to discuss and find solutions.

There will be demonstrations, along with individual work time and one-on-one time with me, giving ample opportunity to explore the materials and tools. 

All equipment, paints, and most materials are included. Wood panels (sizes 6” x 6” to 8” x 10”) will be provided for painting, and some items and papers for collaging or embedding will be available.

Participants are welcome to bring along any additional items they might like to work with, such as decorative papers, beads, found objects or other small mementos. Apron or studio clothes are suggested.

Class size is limited, so sign up early!
