Winter Wonderland: Encaustic Art Workshop
Saturday, March 21st at Hygge Life
w/ Shaun Minné
Morning Class: 10-1pm
Afternoon Class: 2-5pm
Encaustic art is an ancient, yet thoroughly modern feeling, form of wax painting and Shaun Minné is an expert in this technique. Used as a contemporary medium it is a versatile method of creating unique pieces of art. Beeswax, damar resin and pigment are all kept molten on a heated palette, applied to a rigid surface and then fused together to come to life with heat. Shaun Minne's workshop will teach you how to embed images, create snow textures, apply different types of metallics & masking techniques. We'll focus on winter scenes; sports, wildlife & landscapes. Several images will be available to use however, it is a great mixed media art form to incorporate your personal images and photos.
- No previous experience required; this class is appropriate for the newbie as well as experienced artists.
- All materials included. Copies of your own images welcome but not required.
- You'll create two pieces of art; 6" x 6" and 8" x 8".
- $99.00 includes all materials, tools and supplies.
