Class Level: Beginner-Novice. This class repeats every month.

Our 1/19/19 Encaustic Mini is now Full. Please call #845.331.3112 if you would like to be added to the wait-list, or check our calendar for available dates. 

Mini encaustic workshops give participants a hands on introduction to the encaustic process. We provide a 90 minute demonstration of basic technique followed by hands on studio time. You have a chance to explore the entire R&F color line and all encaustic tools in a safe comfortable work environment. Topics covered will include: health and safety; an introduction to wax; how to start; and popular techniques and applications such as image transfer. If you’re familiar with the encaustic process and desire a refresher; or you’ve taken a longer workshop and want studio work time feel free to participate knowing an instructor available to answer your questions. Mini workshops are ideal for anyone curious or interested in encaustic painting but don’t have any experience. Click the title above to read more.
