Introduction to Encaustic Workshop: SO Many Options!

  • Contemporaneo Asheville Gallery & Shop 4 Biltmore Avenue Asheville, NC, 28801 United States (map)


Are you curious about encaustic (wax paint applied with heat) and how to use it? Wondering what is involved? Intimated by the notion of painting with hot wax?  Encaustic painting has SO many applications for the artist, but there is a bit of a learning curve when approaching this medium. This workshop will introduce you to this fascinating process. You will learn about the history of the medium – It goes WAY back! - it’s various applications, ways to use it, and what kind of investment it takes to get started. Materials will be provided, so this is a great way to find out about the medium before jumping it. Hopefully, you will want to!  For the hands on portion of the workshop, we will focus on the transfer process, with encaustic coated panels prepped & supplied for you. Then it’s up to you to experiment and have fun!
