CLASS DESCRIPTION
This vibrant workshop combines multiple media techniques with melted beeswax on a variety of surfaces, emphasizing unity of design, texture and color. We work with a combination of both dry and wet media, including soft pastels, watercolor, oil paint/sticks/pastels, charcoal, graphite and collage. No acrylic media. All imagery applicable. Use media of choice. Appropriate for continuing painters and collagists. Instructor supplies the wax medium, wax paint, heating tools (griddles, heat guns, torches) practice surfaces and two panels per student. There is an $85 materials fee to be paid to the instructor at the workshop.
