Day One- The drawing session. Kim will lead you in sketching from the live model with the proper drawing tools, papers and techniques appropriate to this unique practice. A final critique narrows down the best choices of drawings to be enhanced with wax in Penny’s session.

Day Two- Encaustic painting session. Spend day two with Penny demonstrating methods of saturating drawings with natural beeswax, embedding, enhancing with pigment, texture building/escavating, applying washes, transferring and more. Artists may use original charcoal sketches or copies to apply these methods. Sketches may be masterfully drawn or blindly contoured, tightly cropped, randomly torn or intentionally burned, then transformed into finished encaustic paintings.

All levels welcome. Min. Students 5- Max. 8

“I was so inspired by the beauty all around, all your gorgeous work, the perfect relaxed setting and your family’s hospitality.  It was a truly fulfilling weekend.  The photo-shoot was a lot of fun, Judy taught me things I’ve been wondering about for years.  It was great to have time to practice and then go over what worked and what didn’t.  I just found that the whole weekend went by in a flash…!! ~~~Tracey
