The Basics of Encaustic

Join us for Linda Nunes’ “encaustic” demonstration on Thursday, April 11.

Linda will discuss the basics of encaustic: tools, safety, and a brief history. She’ll demonstrate layering, using heat to fuse the wax, a little bit about using mixed media, and other possibilities. There are really SO, SO MANY possibilities!!!

Also on Thursday, we will be announcing our next quarterly art challenge, and one or more members will sharing our first round of helpful art tips or hacks!
