Macro Wave encaustic by Lauri Borer

ArtEscape Studios, 3 W. Poplar St., will host an art workshop in encaustics. 

It will provide an opportunity for the curious and creative minded to explore art making with the guidance of a highly skilled artist, and with a limited monetary commitment. All supplies will be provided and experience is not required.  

It will provide foundation information on working with the mediums and will center on guided art making and exploration. 

Early registration is encouraged to secure a place.

Because of potential hazards that can accompany working with tools, all participants must be 18 or older or accompanied by an adult — workshop costs apply to all who attend and are making art.  

Encaustic: $80, Aug. 24, 1-4 p.m.

Participants will learn beginning encaustic techniques. A brief history and description of encaustic painting will be discussed along with basic supplies and tools, safety and fusing techniques, painting application methods to create layers of color and textures unique to the ancient and versatile medium. Participants will have the opportunity to complete two works of art.
