The 1st of a series of free encaustic demos for kids was a huge success at the Encaustic Art Institute in Cerillos, New Mexico! EAI’s Educational Director, Carol Ware and Program Director, Russell Thurston gave a hands-on demo at the opening of the “Hot Wax” exhibition, where, as you can see, the parents seemed to enjoy trying encaustic painting as much as the kids. Move over Hasbro - R&F is coming to town!
Check out these families working with our paints on the Paula Roland HotBox for encaustic printmaking.
R&F Handmade Paints donated materials for this project, and we look forward to future collaborations with the Encaustic Art Institute.
R&F will be presenting another workshop at EAI this August. Gina Adams will be the instructor, and it promises to be a wonderful workshop. For more info, or to enroll, please visit; August 4-8 EAI Workshop
