Encaustic Painting: Intermediate

February 10 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

February 10@10:00 am – 3:00 pm $130

This workshop day is designed to be an open studio for students who have participated in prior one-day workshops who want more time to develop their work. Though we will touch upon and facilitate good studio practices for fusing, painting and more – there will be ample time for students to work independently and stretch their own personal ideas with this unique painting materials on multiple panels. Students will receive plenty of individualized instruction and additional technique demonstrations.

We are also offering a Beginner Encaustic workshop the day before. Register for both the Beginner and Intermediate classes for a full Encaustic deep dive weekend!
