This is a 3 day intensive course taught by one of the leading figures in contemporary encaustic. Encaustic is the art of painting with molten beeswax, mixed with coloured pigments and resin. The results are like no other medium–mysterious, deep, and translucent, with a glow that seems to emanate from within. It’s an ancient technique that has recently been reborn, capturing the imagination of a new generation of painters who are adopting encaustic as their medium of choice. Lora Murphy will teach you how to paint with this fascinating medium either as stand alone medium or incorporating it into your mixed media practice. Lora has many years experience teaching and experimenting and will teach you how to break the rules, safely. EOM Studios is a state of the art studio with an extensive exhaust system for best encaustic practices. Places are limited.
