Join visual artist Candace Law at the War Memorial on Saturday, October 28 from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm for an encaustic on paper workshop sponsored by the Grosse Pointe Artists Association. Using paper as a surface for creating is a time-honored tradition, and it can work beautifully with the ancient art of encaustic.

New to encaustic, or just want to brush up on your skills? In either case, this class will fit your needs. There will be demos, as well as plenty of one-on-one time for help and questions.

The workshop will include:

  • A review of the equipment, materials typically used, and basic safety tips
  • Experimenting with paint on heavy paper
  • Learning how to achieve smooth and textured surfaces
  • Using additional tools to add marks and incise lines

All equipment, paints, brushes and most materials are supplied by the instructor. Heavy paper, watercolor or Bristol board, approximately 9×12, will be provided, along with some additional items to use for mark-making or embedding.

Students are welcome to bring a few items they might like to work with, such as decorative papers, found objects or other small ephemera. Apron or studio clothes are suggested. Feel free to bring along images to use as references.
