Encaustic Painting 101


What’s Happening?

You can take your first step into the world of encaustic painting with this three-hour class where you'll learn to paint safely with a molten combination of beeswax, damar resin, and powdered pigments. You’ll blend colors, build textures, fuse with a heat gun, and use various tools for scraping and incising. At the end of the class, you’ll leave with an archival 6 x 6” painting that you created, and the skills to make more!

All materials are included: high quality, sustainably sourced wood panels, filtered beeswax, powdered pigments, and pre-made encaustic paints that you can purchase locally. This introductory class doesn't require any artistic skill. All you need is a desire to be creative and an appreciation for textured art.

This event will take place outdoors in the NCHM Centennial Courtyard. The hot plates will help keep us warm but please dress accordingly.

Encaustic Painting 101 will take place immediately after Holiday Art on the Lawn (11:00am-4:00pm). Click here to learn more about Holiday Art on the Lawn at the NCHM!
