Join visual artist Candace Law in the studio on Saturday, November 12 from 10 am to 4 pm for a day of creativity using encaustic on paper!

In this workshop, you will learn about painting with encaustic using paper as the support instead of wood panels—from heavier weights to thin Japanese sheets. We’ll be covering:

  • A brief review of encaustic basics and a warmup exercise
  • Using brushes and hot wax to paint onto paper
  • Painting on paper on a heated palette with wax chunks
  • Briefly exploring printing monotypes directly on the heated palette

Demonstrations and group discussion, as well as individual work time and one-on-one time with the instructor will fill out the day.

As always, the equipment, supplies, and most materials are provided. In addition, you may want to bring a few of your own papers with which to experiment.

New to encaustic, or been away from it for a while? This is a great time to give it a try, or come and remind yourself just how wonderful and versatile this medium is. There will be ample time for learning the basics and warming up.

Class size is limited, so sign up early and get the early-bird price! The cost is just $140 until October 28 or $165 for later registrations.
