Try It! Renegade Encaustics: Beeswax & Collage
w/ Tracy Felix

Two Dates To Choose From:
Friday / June 29 / 6-8:30 pm
Friday / November. 16 / 6-8:30 pm

“Try It!” is a FUN way to try something new! Just 2 ½-hours on a Friday night, and no supply list: just come with a friend or make it a date night – or come by yourself and make some new friends!

In this Try It! you’ll create a wonderful painting with encaustic (melted beeswax) and collage! Tracy will bring cool papers and other “found objects” for you to use to create your collage. Your finished piece will have wax layered over your collage, and more collage layered into your wax! Great for beginners!

Try It! Renegade Encaustics: Designs and Color in Wax
w/ Tracy Felix

Friday / August  17 / 6-8:30pm

Paintings in natural wax can have such intriguing subtlety. And it’s amazingly simple and fun to create these effects! In this short class, you will get to use various tools to create designs (or “mark-making”) in your wax painting, and then add color with oil colors and finish with highlights of sparkly mica powder.

 

NEW! Renegade Encaustics:  
Monotype Encaustic Printing
w/ Tracy Felix

Saturday-Sunday / September 8-9 / 11am-5pm

If you love the idea of melting color waxes on a hot plate, and transferring the designs into paper, you will fall in love with the feeling of monotype printing with encaustics. The first time Tracy tried it, she couldn’t stop! She has been demonstrating this extremely enjoyable technique for a few years and decided it needed its very own class! Warning… this artmaking process is addictive!
