The Hive: Introduction to Encaustics with Kim Kool

  • Sun Apr 07, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Participants will learn about the beautiful process of painting with heated oil tinted, natural beeswax. You will learn how to layer and fuse the wax, how to create texture through gouging and mark making techniques, how to embed materials between the layers, basic photo transfers, and the use of the hot stylus tool. We will then go deeper and explore adding even more colour and imagery with pan pastels, stencils, and India ink. No experience necessary.
All supplies and equipment included. Absolutely no previous artistic experience required.
