Encaustic Workshop

Saturday August 26

Other dates...

10:30 AM  –  12:30 PM

Location: Kenosha Public Museum

Instructor: Kathy Laybourn

All supplies included. 

Have you ever made art by experimenting with melting Crayon when you were a kid? I did and ruined my mother's iron! This workshop is designed for anyone who would like to be introduced to the "cold wax" encaustic method. Students will learn to add a soft, beeswax mix into oil paint which is applied to an encaustic board and melted with a heat gun. Successive layers of paint can be built up and mixed media elements can also be added to the layers to create both representational and abstract pieces of art.


Online sales end two days prior to class due to supply needs for the instructors, please call the Museums (262-653-4140) to inquire if registrations are still available.
