INTRODUCTION to ENCAUSTIC PAINTING

Torbay Bight Studio

September 15 or 16, 2018

 

This workshop gives participants an intensive introduction to the encaustic medium using the full range of encaustic colors and equipment developed by the R&F Paint company in Kingston, NY.

 

Artists with backgrounds in almost any medium will find these workshops are an exciting opportunity to expand their visual vocabulary with wax. Some who attend have little familiarity with encaustic, others have experience working in the medium, but seek to refine their technique. The dynamic created by this diverse mix of artists adds to the learning experience and to the discovery of new techniques and applications.
