Embracing Encaustics with Artist Linda Blakney

Back by popular demand! Encaustics use melted, pigmented beeswax to create luminous paintings with translucency, opacity and other unique qualities. In this course, we will explore and experiment with contemporary techniques to create colour, textures and patterns, while incorporating mixed media into our encaustic pieces. Suitable for encaustics beginners as well as those with experience. We will be including new and different things this season so returning students are encouraged!

Materials provided.

Supplies to bring:

  • paper towels
  • masking tape
  • scissors (optional)
  • pencil, sketch paper
  • pan pastels (if you already own them)
  • oil pastels/oil sticks (if you already own them)
  • palette knives (if you already own them)

Ideal for all levels.
