Try It! Encaustics: Colorful Palette
w/ Tracy Felix

Friday evening / February 15 / 6:00-8:30 pm

If you love color and patterns and want to learn how to create it in beautiful wax colors, this is the “Try It!” class for you!  Tracy will show you how to paint with hot, pigmented wax, layering color and creating patterns using stencils, and you’ll finish your encaustic painting with alcohol ink to add even more color and shine! Great for all levels.

Mixed Media Encaustics
w/ Tracy Felix

Saturday / February 16 / 11-5pm

In this great workshop you'll create two exciting projects as you explore Tracy's new and fun techniques!  As the owner of ARTspot, she has access to a wonderful smorgasbord of art supplies and she brings them all to this full day exploration of what plays well with wax. You will have lots of time to play, and complete two projects for too much fun!
ALL SUPPLIES ARE INCLUDED IN THE SUPPLY FEE!

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

Friday evening / April 12 /  6:00-8:30 pm

Paintings in natural wax can have such intriguing subtlety. And it’s amazingly simple and fun to create these effects! In this 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.


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

Friday evening / June 7 / 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!
