Encaustic for Beginners/Intermediate Level

Want to learn how to paint with beeswax? Come join me for a playful yet informative Encaustic class where you'll experiment and explore this dynamic medium. I'll be giving step-by-step demonstrations followed by open studio time where you can create freely using the skills you've learned. Everyone works at their own pace with me standing by to assist with each step and answer questions. Watch as you slowly grow your skills using an array of Encaustic tools including painting with a blowtorch.
